The first Italian town that tourists coming from northern Europe meets on Lake Maggiore, has retained much of its natural, historical and architectural patrimony.
It’s an historical village, in a wonderful lake and mountain scenery. The climate is characterized by mild winters and little muggy and windy summers. Rich and varied vegetation, with spring blossoms of mimosa, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. For water quality and the positive environmental characteristics, Cannobio scored the Blue Flag, a prestigious international award. This tourist centre has interesting medieval testimonies, including the Palazzo della Ragione, said "Parrasio", built at the end of two hundred from the mayor Ugolino Mandello and amended in the seventeenth century with portico, where the right stands the Torre del Comune, Romanesque (XII century), which actually is the old bell tower of the Collegiate Church of San Vittore nearby, demolished and rebuilt in the eighteenth century.
The sanctuary of Pietà (end of the sixteenth century) is due to St. Charles Borromeo. Cannobio is located not far from the gorge of St. Anna, a rocky gorge carved by the river Cannobino.
Former testimony of an illustrious historical past (even in the seventeenth century possessed a mint where the coin was fighting) is the so-called imperial tower, overlooking the lake and dating from the twelfth or thirteenth century.
