St. Margherita

 On the other side of the lake, in front of Oria, on feet of Mount. Bisnago, there is a little village called St. Margherita. It is possible to reach this little hamlet only with a boat, because there isn't any road. Till half of the nineteen century a funicular linked this hamlet with Lanzo Intelvi, now we can see only the old locomotive nearby the station's hotel. In St. Margherita there were two police stations, one of these now is a private home, the other was buyed by the Municipality to be restructured.
On the facade of the crumbling building there are two frescoes and nearby a little tower. At the time of the pest in 1600 all the sick people were carried here to avoid the diffusion of this desease.
