Luino, birthplace of Piero Chiara (famous italian writer), is mentioned several times in his novels.
Located at the mouth of Valtravaglia and Tresa, in a large inlet of the lake, is renowned holiday resort.
In addition, encouraged by the convergence of communications networks and the proximity of the border crossing points with Switzerland, is home of industrial and commercial activities of ancient tradition.
The old town, which still features ancient buildings and narrow streets uphill, is originated in the hinterland along the right bank of the river Tresa. More recent it is the development of the lake promenade, where stands the fifteenth-century Madonna del Carmine, and the southern part of town.
In the central Piazza Garibaldi, the Monument to the Hero of 1867 by Alessandro Puttinati, commemorates the clash took place between the Austrians and 1.500 volunteers led by Garibaldi, on 14 August 1848.
Here takes place every Wednesday, the popular and crowded market, established by special edict by Emperor Charles V of Habsburg in 1541, and considered the oldest market in Europe.
Overlooking the lake there is also the Freedom Square, where there is Palazzo Crivelli Serbelloni, designed by Carlo Felice Soave (now city hall), surrounded by other elegant nineteenth century buildings.
