Lago Maggiore

On the Lombard shore of Lake Maggiore, between Luino and the border with the Ticino coast of Verbano, is located the beautiful Maccagno con Pino and Veddasca. Less than 6 km from Luino, Maccagno con Pino and Veddasca is a municipality with a vast territory, reaching from the lake to the mountainous area of the Veddasca valley. Unified in 2014 with Pino and Veddasca, Maccagno has in fact expanded its territory considerably, becoming a small and charming town.

There are many things to see in Maccagno, from the religious testimonies with churches and frescoed chapels, among which the Sanctuary of the Madonnina della Punta stands out, to the narrow streets with leaning houses, dominated by Torre Imperiale.

Also of value are the washhouses, the sundial of Campagnano, the wooden figures of Musignano, the mosaics of Cadero, the Casa Branca with its precious loggias, and the numerous alpine pastures. Then a visit to the Parisi Valle Civic Museum, which houses its creator’s collection of modern art, and to the Roncovalgrande Power Plant are a must.

Last but not least, don’t miss the promenade that connects the beaches from Inferiore to Gabella and enjoy the breathtaking view of almost all of Verbano, from the peaks of Canton Ticino to the Borromeo Gulf.
