Location: Brunate      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 26 April 2019

The "Faro Voltiano" (Volta Lighthouse) was built in 1927 and it is located up in San Maurizio Brunate. The Lighthouse is dedicated to scientist Alessandro Volta. The Faro is an octagonal tower, 29 meters high, and dominates the lake, the prealps and it offers a majestic view of Lake Como and the distant Alps.


Amazing view! Maybe from a small church called S.S.d.P.?

Hi Werner. The pano was not taken from a church, but from a fairly famous vantage point.

The area is straightforward to find, but due to the long focal length not the place. Have come across Werner's church, but you are a bit more to the east. Could it be that you stand near the Croce dell'...? Cheers, Martin

I'm at the top of a famous "lighthouse". Perhaps outside Italy it is little known.

Ah...even further. Faro V...?

The location I meant was the Chiesa Santo Stefano di Pedrinate, not far away from here.

I have never been to that church and I didn't know it, but I sensed that you had identified the area....

A very impressive location - please plan a visit again, if the weather allows a clear view to the Alps ;-) !!!

Un caro saluto, Hans-Jörg
