Bellano is famous for l'Orrido (Ravine) a gorge formed by the waters of the Pioverna torrent, which by erosion dug a deep ravine in the stretch from Taceno in Valsassina to Bellano.”

Church
“ Among the sacred buildings stands out the famous Piona Abbey (Abbazia di Piona), commissioned by Vescovo (Bishop) Agrippino, dating back to the 7th century. Entering into the abbey you can visit, the Church, the Cloister and the Chapter House. Inside of the building that houses the products of the Piona monks, we can find medicinal herbs, honey and the famous liquors wisely distilled according to the most ancient traditions, all natural products made by the hard-working monks.”
