Its central position, among lake and mountains, makes Menaggio an ideal starting point for all kinds of excursions
Plesio is a municipality composed of different hamlets, which are scattered among woods and pastures.To be pointed out: the Madonna's Sanctuary at Breglia, from which the view is wonderful, and the parish church from the XVIth century.
This was followed by the Spanish invasion which, for nearly two centuries, brought misery, destruction and the plague. It was only with the arrival of the Austrians and Archduchess Maria Teresa that order and prosperity returned.
On the 25 of May, 1.859, people declared the end of Austrian domination. Thus a new epoch began where the area became a resort and so had a new source of income. In 1.945 Menaggio was in the news with the passing through of the Column of Mussolini, which stopped at the school of "Castellino da Castello", where the Brigate Nere were staying.
