Lake Pusiano and Isola dei Cipressi
Lake Pusiano is the only one of the Brianza lakes that has an island: the Island of Cypresses.

The island takes its name from its numerous cypress trees and now is a private property, available for visits just on guided tours.

Villa Sormani and Tenuta
The count Alessandro Sormani, great lover of royal residences of Provence, wanted that his villa in Lurago d’Erba was built following that precise architectural style. Villa Sormani and its gardens were finished in 1783 on the top of a hill, so that it can dominate on one side Pomelasca Estate and on the other the rest of Lurago d’Erba. The locality Pomelasca is composed by the plots of land owned by the noble family Sormani: it includes the delicious little red church, which houses the relics of some famous components of the family, the estate and the villa where the family lived and the farmsteads whose products supplied the whole area, scattered here and there in the wavy countryside.
