It is 1600 meters long and leads to Rovenna, an hamlet of the town of Cernobbio. It takes about 1 hour.
When you arrive in Tosnacco go to “Via per Tosnacco Casarico” you can park here or along the road. Follow the road until you reach the fraction of Casarico, where beside the small Chapel you will find the sign to follow the path of “Rovenna, Sentee di Sort”, you will see a wonderful view on the lake!
Along the path you will find the stone quarries of Moltrasio.
The stone of Moltrasio was already used in the Romanesque era, there are manuscripts that prove the excavation started since 1058. The stone was commonly used for the construction of buildings including roof coverings with the characteristics of thin slabs known as ‘piode’, type of roofs rare to see today. Como is a rich testimony to the use of Moltrasina stone in the construction of the walls that encircle the old town, the Duomo and the important lake villas.
From here, walking for about 45 min it is possible to reach Rovenna.
