The ancient fishing village of Domaso is situated on the westside of Lake Como towards the north and is approximately 40km from the town of Como. This is a popular resort with watersports enthusiasts due to the constant breeze of ‘la breva.’ Pianello del Lario which lies south of Gravedona is the location of one of the most important sailing clubs on the lake.
One of the most prominent buildings in Domaso is Villa Camilla which was built in the 1600s. The villa eventually became the home of the Sebregondi family by the 1800s. Villa Camilla is now the townhall of Domaso and has been since the mid 1900s. However Villa Camilla also hosts numerous events throughout the year; concerts, antique exhibitions and painting exhibitions, plus many other events. The beautiful gardens of Villa Camilla have various flora and fauna such as camellias, confier trees, lemon trees and magnolia trees.
Another sight to see is the church of St.Bartholomew built in the 1500s. Inside the church you can view frescoes of the Ligari and Silva families and also the the tomb of Luigi Panizza (Governor of the Forte di Fuentes).
Domaso has many campsites down by the lakesside with good facilities, ideal for a spectacular holiday on a budget. There are numerous narrow streets leading up from the lakeside of Domaso into the mountains. With the variety of bars, cafes and restaurants in the area, you can grab a panino to top up your energy levels for the walk uphill.
