VIDEO -- Lago di Mergozzo



This video gives an aerial and on-the-ground view of one of my favorite spots, little, lovely Lago Mergozzo. We've visited Mergozzo already in a couple of posts, and you probably know it's one of my favorite spots around here. I love in this video that you can really see the town nestled in the mountains, and how close the lake is to Lago Maggiore, yet how isolated one feels when here at Mergozzo.

The last few seconds of video show a quarry, and then the Duomo in Milano. This is a reference to the marble which the Duomo is built from. It is from this very quarry, in tiny Mergozzo, and it made its way to Milano on the water, from Mergozzo, then through to Lago Maggiore, and then down the river and canals into the center of Milan. It's a nice bit of trivia to know.

Here's a better description of Lago Mergozzo in this post:

And this post has a few photos I took there last summer:
