San Pietro al Monte is one of those places where the beauty of human and natural creation are blended to give unique emotions. The walk to reach it would deserve alone an itinerary because of the views of the background mountains and the underlying lakes. The complex, recently and deservedly nominated to become a UNESCO world heritage site, makes this experience unforgettable and surprises the visitor for its location and peculiarities. The documents about the first construction diverge in relation to the various dating. However, everyone agrees to place the foundation of the monastery in the Longobard era, attributing the idea of its realization to Desiderius, the last Lombard king. This is the start of a fascinating and glorious story that continues until our days.
