The Lecco mountain of Monte Barro lies inside the regional park that bears its name, a stunning nature reserve of European importance. Surrounded by the lakes of Annone, Garlate and Como, the 922-metre tall mountain hides a treasure trove of biodiversity.

The summit of Monte Barro offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the surrounding landscape: from the Brianza hills to the Adda Valley, from the majestic Monte Resegone to the imposing Grigne, from Lake Como to Corni di Canzo and as far as the vast Po Valley.

The paths of the Monte Barro Park are rich in biodiversity with more than 1,200 species of plants. The fauna is just as diverse and fascinating and is the focus of research at the Experimental Ornithological Station of Costa Perla, an important study centre for bird migrations. Those interested in the history of the area can visit the Archaeological Museum of Barro, the Ethnographic Museum of Alta Brianza (MEAB) or explore the ancient Archaeological Area of Piani di Barra, where there are remains dating back to the Gothic period.

The Eremo of Mount Barro lies at an altitude of 750 metres in the centre of the Park, offering a range of services to visitors, including a restaurant and a hostel. Its strategic location make it the perfect base for hiking or educational activities.

Mount Barro is also a real paradise for outdoor sports enthusiasts with a host of activities available, such as orienteering, climbing and trekking.
