The small town of Trezzone has an enchanting panoramic view of the Alto Lario and the surrounding mountains. With the majestic Monte Legnone in the foreground, it is located in the mountains of Sorico between the slopes of the Pizzo Sasso Canale and the Valley of Gera. Just a few minutes by car from the shores of the lake and an excellent starting point for picturesque mountain bike tours, the town’s ancient centre has remained relatively intact, characterised by stone houses and overpasses, high steps, underpasses and paved quarters that branch off from the main road, Via Regina.
Like many mountain villages in the area, most of Trezzone’s inhabitants emigrated to Palermo between the 16th and 19th centuries, from where the emigrants imported the cult of Santa Rosalia and many precious objects. Built in the late 15th century, the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie stands in an isolated position, just below the village of Aurogna. It can be reached by a mule track and still preserves many Baroque elements donated by the generosity of the emigrants. Also noteworthy are the beautiful Gothic bell tower and the 15th century fresco of the Virgin Mary.
