The Municipality of Osteno rises at the point where the river Lirone and the Telo creek meet by cascading into Osteno’s gorge.
The rubble brought by the creek and from the lake has created a natural beach in the shade of ancient trees over the millennia, from which it is possible to admire the passage of swans, mallards, gray herons and cormorants.
Thanks to the small Malombra Pier, public boats and boat lovers can dock in Ugo Ricci Square to discover the most picturesque corners of the town.
The parish church of the Saints Pietro and Paolo, which sits higher than the rest of the historic center, is formed by three naves, six pillars, seven altars and a vaulted roof.
This roof was completed over several centuries thanks to the work of famous local artists with the collaboration of the parishioners.
