Cornizzolo - Piste Cyclable


Monte Cornizzolo (Insubric Curnisciöö) is a mountain situated in the province of Lecco, Lombardy, northern Italy. The peak reaches 1,241 metres in altitude. It houses the Maria Consigliere hut, open every Sunday throughout the year, at 1,100 metres above sea level. Mount Cornizzolo is well known amongst hang gliding and paragliding fans, because it has got a launch camp available almost all year. An element of historical interest is the Abbey of San Pietro al Monte, an 11th-century building which is located in a little valley on the mountain. It's a holy mountain, seat of Pre-Celtic (e.g. the Coppelle: cult of Water), Celtic (e.g. the Cepp da l'Angua: cult of Anguana), Roman (e.g. the Fons Sacer: cult of Mars) and Christian worships. There are, at the foot of the mountain: the Shrine of Saint Miro, the Chapel of Saint Michael at Lazzaretto, the Chapel of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows, La Santa, the Church of Saint Francis, the Church of the Saints Vitus and Modest, the Monastery of Saint Calocero, the Church of Saint Nazarus, the Church of Saint Andrew at Isella, the Pilgrims' House, the Church of Saint Steven, the Chapel of Our Lady of Caravaggio, the Monastery of Barnabite Fathers, the Church of Saint Lorence, the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snow, the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Church of Saint Antony, the Church of Saint Martin, the Church of Saint Thomas, and many other religious buildings. The company Holcim is going to add another quarry, next to the Abbey, destroying the 500 "casotte" traditional construction.
