Maggiana Tower Mandello del Lario


Also called Tower of Barbarossa, stands high over Mandello dating from the twelfth century. The tower has been rebuilt over the years, but retains interesting architectural features like the arched portal, the remains of painted trophies and a nineteenth-century terrace where you can enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Como and the mountains. Inside, the tower is home to an ethnographic museum with a model of the town and several exhibits that recall history of past farmers and inhabitants of the area.
