Bellano Gorge is a natural waterfall, formed in ancient times by Pioverna creek flown into Lake Como, after going through the entire length of Valsassina’s valley.

Over thousands of years water has carved a deep gorge and shaped the magnificent cliffs of the mountain, creating a gloomy and picturesque environment.

The grave rumble of the turbulent waters and the wild beauty of nature have always inspired mysterious tales and legends and even nowadays these places are surrounded by an aura of mistery.

In the collective imaginary Cà del Diavol evokes fears and satanic rituals, maling the mysterious charm of the Orrido even more palpable. A cement walkway allows visitors to walk through the steep rocks and appreciate the charm of these places.
