Monte Resegone, also known as Monte Serrada, is one of the best-known mountains in the province of Lecco, located on the border with the province of Bergamo. It was made famous by Alessandro Manzoni who mentioned it in the opening lines of his novel “The Betrothed”, describing “its many peaks seen in profile, which in truth resemble the teeth of a saw”.

The “saw” shape of its many peaks can be seen from Lecco.  A different view of this beautiful mountain can be enjoyed from the Bergamo side where the slopes are less steep and much gentler. Geologically, Resegone is primarily composed of dolomite rock, which gives it the typical pinkish colour at sunset, creating a very evocative sight.

The highest peak, Punta Cermenati, rises to 1875 metres above sea level, where there is a cross at the top and the famous mountain hut: Rifugio Luigi Azzoni.

On the Lecco side of Resegone, Piani d’Erna is a popular tourist destination that can be reached on foot or by cable car, offering hikers and nature lovers a unique experience in the stunning Lecco mountains.Resegone is the symbol of the city of Lecco: its peculiar shape makes it a true wonder of nature.
