Adda Nord Park

It moves slowly to South, an escape route for Renzo and Lucia

The Park, extended for more 7000 hectars, includes the territories along the coast of Adda River, in the area lays downstream of Lake Como and lakes Garlate and Olginate. Here the river flows in a fascinating landscape, which alternate woods and inhabited areas. The most interesting natural area is the marsh of Brivio. Adda river is also named by Manzoni in “The Betrothed”, who used it as location for several facts in the novel. For Renzo, a man on the run, the river was “as find a friend, a brother, a saviour”. You can easily understand the importance of the river for the area, for natural aspects as well as cultural and historical ones.

Significant are the archaeological and monumental features, with works of hydraulics engineering from the beginning of the century, like the sluice gates of Leonardo in Trezzo d’Adda, the Paderno Bridge and the industrial village of Crespi d’Adda. The excursions can be done on foot or by bike: follow the river coast by bike is nice; the route is completely flat and without traffic. Equal is to ride a horse and explore the coasts, or slide down in the water by a kayak. If you want to cross the river, the navigation between Imbersago and Brivio is assured by an electric boat which can transport up to 50 people.
