Casasco Intelvi
Altitude 822 mts., 31 Kms. from Como
 
Casasco Intelvi is an agricultural and tourist center, located in a beautiful panoramic position on one side of  Val d'Intelvi, at the feet of Pizzo della Croce (1,491 mts.).  In the village the Ferradini Palace is a remarkable site, dating back to the XVII century, with a beautiful portal and inner courtyard with an open gallery. Casasco is an important point of departure for excursions, as well as a base for alpine climbing up Mount Generoso.  At 1,180 mts. you can find the G. Bruno Shelter, of the Cai (Italian Alpine Club) section of Como.  The area is more populous in the winter season because it is equipped with tracks and skiing facilities.  From the village you can reach the Shelter up  Mount Crocione, at 1,463 mts. of altitude,  just under the summit of Pizzo della Croce.
