This charming little village on the west side of Lake Como sits just south of Lenno and more or less opposite Isola Comacina (the only island in Lake Como). The distance from Como is approximately 30 minutes by bus or car. There is a small grass area down by the lakeside with a snackbar. You can sit here and cool yourself down with a drink whilst sunbathing or alternatively go for a dip in the lake. The Lido di Ossuccio is only open during the summer months.
Although small, Ossuccio is famous for its numerous ancient churches. Near the lakefront of Ossuccio you will see two very distinguishable bell towers; the Moorish tower of the Santa Maria Maddalena ad Ospedaletto Church and the sail shaped tower of San Giacomo Church.
The Sacro Monte di Ossuccio which is an UNESCO world heritage site (meaning Sacred Mountain of Ossuccio) and many people make a pilgrimage to this mountain. There are many other walks in the area and one very popular walk is the one up that takes you up to the Santuario della Madonna del Soccorso which passes fourteen Baroque style churches on the way.
