THE SAN CARLO ROUTE
The San Carlo loop route connects the villages of the Cannobina Valley. It takes its name from San Carlo Borromeo in memory of a pastoral visit that the Saint made to the Valley in 1574.
In Gurro, the ancient and charming “Casa San Carlo” is a reminder of where the Saint slept during his pastoral journey.
This itinerary is split into two stops: the first from Cannobio on Lake Maggiore to Falmenta, a small village in the Cannobina Valley.
The second is part of a half-loop itinerary that starts from Falmenta and reaches Cursolo (on the opposite bank of T. Cannobino). The route follows almost entirely beautiful, paved mule tracks. From Falmenta, a variant of the second stop allows from Gurro to reach Cursolo directly, shortening the path.
