The Village of Tronzano Lago Maggiore (about 350 meters above sea level) is a real balcony over the lake, it is located on the Lombard shore of Lake Maggiore, lying on a hill overlooking the Verbano, below the slopes of Mount Borgna. Further north only Pino Lago Maggiore separates him from the border with Switzerland. The small village rises and grows in the hilly area of the country, where the first houses were built.
In addition to the original nucleus of Tronzano and Bassano, are part of the village area some small towns on the lake: Ronco Scigolino, Canovi, e Poggio, connected to the center of Tronzano trough a wonderful walk. The mountain area is occupied by the small mountains town of "Monti di Bassano". In Tronzano all the lanes were paved with stone slabs (piode) that covered the old roofs of the houses before being replaced after the fifties, with the tiles. On the low walls that surround the gardens are still visible "plates of mill" also called just “Mill”, type of engraving, for ancient outdoor games ; other evidence of the past are the stacks of barley, rounded or squared stone blocks that were used for husking barley. Many and very characteristic are the sundials and the remains of old mills along the streams "Valegion" and "Molinera.
