Colico and its history

Montecchio Fort and Fuentes Fort

Colico has undergone numerous dominating invasions and became the perfect area for controlling the territory. For this reason, you can visit the fortifications that are spread
around the area.
Fort Montecchio Nord, a structure that can be considered modern, was completed at the end of 1914 and represents the most technological Italian installation of the First World War.
The Fort of Fuentes is on the East Montecchio, in the Pian di Spagna. It was built between 1601 and 1605. The Fort was commissioned by the Spanish governor of
Milan in order to defend the border with the territory of the Grisons, which at the time extended to Colico.

Both are open to the public.
