Monte barro (922 m), located south of Lecco, between the lakes of Annone and Garlate, is composed of twisted layers of dolomite. From the top you can enjoy a splendid panorama of the lake and the city of Lecco, the Brianza lakes and the Grigne massif. The area's gelogical formations are interesting, such as doline outcrops of dolomites and many erratic boulders. The naturalistic richness of the area is constituted by the presence of glacial wrecks (such as peony), rock vegetation and strips of insubric prairie. In the eighties of the twentieth century traces of an ancient Ostrogoth settlement were found, dating back to the end of the fourth century, fifth and sixth centuries AD.
