Description

The ice-shelters of Cazzago Brabbiahave a long and fascinating history, and they contributed to the changes that occurred in the environment over previous centuries. The shelters were built entirely in stone in the late 18th century, on the banks of Lake Varese, in excavated hollows about ten metres deep. They have conical roofs, similar to the "trulli" that can be seen in some Apulian locations.These constructions were built to store ice and fish from Lake Varese.
