Parks, natural reserves and other beautiful places in Chiavenna

The Marmitte dei Giganti Park, the Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve and the Acquafraggia Waterfalls

The Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve is located at the top of Lake Como. These extensive wetlands are of significant ecological interest due to the presence of a huge variety of migratory birds. 

In Chiavenna, there is another conservation area, the Parco delle Marmitte dei Giganti, whose primary attraction is the deep, oddly shaped holes dug into the stone by the action of glacial waters, which are called Marmitte dei Giganti, or Giants’ Pots.

Piuro, which has been subject to archaeological digging, boasts a veritable natural monument, the Cascate dell'Acquafraggia,, which were mentioned by Leonardo Da Vinci in his Codex Atlanticus.
