Sesto Calende

Touristic town situated in the point where the river Ticino flows out from lake Maggiore, it is completely immersed in the greenery of the Parco Naturale della Valle del Ticino. The territory offers many naturalistic and historical-cultural ideas that visitors can not ignore.

The most important 'monument' of Sesto Calende is the Sass da Preja Buja, a blue-colored rock found in San Vincenzo, in a clearing at the entrance of the forest: in ancient times probably indicates a very important place of worship.

In the town, two churches well worth a visit: one is the Oratorio di San Vincenzo, a small church located north of Sesto Calende, on a grassy knoll, built between the late eleventh century and the beginning of the twelfth century. Place of worship from prehistoric times to today, the area has been the subject of multiple archaeological excavations have proved their importance. Another important religious building is the Abbey of San Donato, the greatest monument of Sesto. Built between the ninth and tenth centuries, the original church has been rebuilt over the centuries superimposed. In all external and internal walls are inserted, as materials for reuse, elements of earlier pagan and Christian buildings on which it was built the present temple.
