Nestled in a beautiful gulf, protected at north by picturesque mountains, it is distributed in a harmonious way, made of squares and characteristic alleys in the heart of the town. Rich in churches and monuments, evidence of a past rich in history and administrative-religious importance, Gravedona is certainly one of the pearls of Lake Como. 

The name derives from Grava: a term used to indicate a coast or stony ground.

Gravedona today no longer appears in the aspect of a time, when the name was imposed, but in the pastel colors of its houses that extant that stony tongue of land that suggests tranquility and rest since when, lapping the water of the shore , entering the blue of the lake and mingling with it, gives a serious and reflective mysterious chromaticity that invites meditation.
