Abbazia di Piona - Lago di Como

Now we head over to the eastern shore of Lago di Como. Our first stop is the Abbazia di Piona, an old monastery that is located on a small peninsula about 8 km south-west of Colico. Here we see the monastery from the garden. The tower is part of the San Nicola church that was built from 1252 to 1257.
