The Col d'Anzana is a mountain pass (2224 m above sea level).M that connects the Val dal Saient on the Swiss side with Teglio in Valtellina.

Description

The pass has always been a popular smuggling route and during World War II it was an important escape route for the Jews who had to leave Italy due to the persecution of Jews by the fascist regime.

From the Col d'Anzana you can go on many interesting hikes. The easiest is the short descent to Rifugio Anzana, which can be reached in just over 20 minutes. From the Swiss side you can reach the Col d'Anzana from Campocologno. At Campascio turn left and take the road into dal Val Saient, past Rifugio Monte Scala and Cavaione (1302 m.M.a.s.l.) to Alpe Pescia Bassa (1832 m.a.s.l..M, also accessible by postbus). From here we continue to Alpe Pescia Alta (2054 m.a.s..M l.) where, away from the alpine huts and on the other side of the valley stream (i.e. on the left side during the ascent, or on the south side) the Rifugio Anzana is located at 2050 m.a.s..M.
