  • This chapel, which is part of the beef route, is located in Malgrate, not far from the lakefront. It was built following the plague epidemic that struck this area in 1630 (as reported in the XXVIII chapter of a.Manzoni's "Newlywed Promises". It is a small closed chapel and, through the railings, you can see the bones of those who died as a result of the plague.

  • Walking along the lakefront of Lecco and continuing towards Malgrate, once I arrived at the village, I came across this small chapel on the road and stopped. I read the sign and approached to take some pictures. The sign says it is one of the few remaining examples of monuments dedicated to the plague of 1630. It deserves a stop and a reflection and I assure you that the landscape will involve you.
