Fortress San Bernardino Mesolcina Calanca

Torre di Boggiano

Torre di Boggiano
The Boggiano Tower stands on a rocky outcrop at the entrance to the Traversagna Valley. The ruins consist of a four-storey tower with a square spire and the remains of a perimeter wall.


The tower, which probably belonged to a permanent fortified settlement, is located at the entrance of the Traversagna Valley, on the road that leads to the Bocchetta di Camedo, a historical link between the Mesolcina and Lake Como. The majestic structure was built in 1406 by Alberto De Sacco as a signal and control tower and is oriented towards the tower of Santa Maria in Calanca. The name Boggiano, which comes from documents from the 13th and 14th centuries, links the building to the powerful Gravedonese family De Boiano.
