The origins

VEDUTA DI LECCO NEL CATASTO TERESIANO, XVIII SECOLO

According to the legend, the origins of the village of Lecco date back to Roman times. This is contradicted though by the fact that no evidence of Roman buildings or burials has been found in the area, so we do not exactly know when the village was built. It is mentioned in some 13th century documents and we definitely know that it became an administrative centre in the 14th century after the settlement of the Visconti. Little is known about when the fortress was erected, but this area has always been considered important from a military point of view, as it is evident from the history of Lecco between the 13th century and the 14th. Both in the war between Guelphs and Ghibellines factions and in the conflict between the Visconti and Della Torre families for the possession of Milan, Lecco was always aligned against Milan and the Visconti, who eventually won the war, so the village had to pay its dues and was destroyed.
