Built from 1603 by Spanish Governor Pedro Enriquez de Acevedo Count of Fuentes in order to face the threatening neighbours, the Grigioni people, in a strategical zone overlooking the Valchiavenna and Valtellina outlets, Fuentes Fort, with its irregular plan, is 300 meters long and 125 meters large and is composed by a U-shaped building, where were located the guards quarters, the Governor Palace, a church, a mill and a bakery, a few water tanks and the underground stores. Nowadays the Spanish Fort, owed by the Lecco District Office, offers to visitors the peace of the grand landscape of the upper Lario.
