Druogno lies in the Vigezzo Valley at an altitude of 831 mt, and is the chief town of a district authority with villages scattered over a large area. The Celtic origin of this sunny and attractive Vigezzo town is encapsulated in its name, which means “the village of the oaks”.
Visitors should not miss the Church of San Silvestro, the ancient Oratory of San Marco, and the intriguing 15th century frescoes on the walls of San Sebastiano and San Rocco.
A 45-minute walk from the centre of Druogno takes you to Coimo, best known for its sunny, panoramic situation and for its excellent rye bread (the famous “black bread” of Coimo). Look out for the pretty watermill at the beginning of the path to the village. Two churches in Coimo are worth a visit: Sant’Ambrogio and the Church of the Blessed Virgin. Other picturesque hamlets are Sagrogno, Albogno, Gagnone and Orcesco.
In spring and summer the Druogno area is perfect for walking, hiking and cycling. In winter the Nordic skiing circuit linking Malesco, Santa Maria Maggiore and Druogno will delight winter sports enthusiasts.
