The Rocca d'Anfo
A jewel nestled on the Idro Lake
Rocca d'Anfo is a system of military fortifications of a great historical and scenic interest which occupies an area of about 50 hectares on the western shore of the Idro Lake (BS), close to the border between Lombardy and Tyrol, between Valle Sabbia and Giudicarie.
