The commune of Laglio, on the Western shore is divided into the two centres of Laglio and Torriggia on Via Regina. Looking to the rear of the village, dense woods stretch up along the slopes of Monte Colmegnone (1,383 mts.). Torriggia is located opposite Careno, on a headland, which extends towards the middle of and the narrowest point of the lake (675 mts.).
The village is of Roman origin of the have been confirmed by a gravestone which was found in a locals home, at the beginning of the 20th century. From 1928 to 1948, Laglio formed a single commune with Brienno. One of the curiosities of this small village is the cemetery where there is a curious eighteenth-century sepulchral monument of a German doctor, in the shape of a twenty-metre-high pyramid.
A point of notable interest is the Buco dell'Orso (Bear hole), which is a large cave that is passable for about 150 mts. and which opens on the slopes of Monte Colmegnone, at a height of 600 mts. It is famous because many bones of cave bears (Ursus Spelaeus) were found there in the eighteenth century. Their skeletons are in the Museum of Natural History, in Milan, and in the local Town Hall.
As with all good Italian villages the religious centre is important. The Church of S. Giorgio built in the sixteenth century contains stucco work by Stefano Salterio of Como (18th century and paintings and sculptures from the seventeenth century.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for a super vacation on Lake Como! Staying in Regina Giardino really made it for us, we felt so relaxed and at home there! We had some great 'alfresco' dinner parties there and there were so many incredible restaurants nearby, including Il Gatto Nero in Cernobbio and Crotto dei Platani in Brienno. Lake Como never failed to wow us with her beauty each and every day - it was easily one of the best vacations we've had in a long while! Barry asks me to say thank you for the great golf club recommendations, they had a great time!
Thank you HHH!
