Bienno Borgo degli Artisti

Town of Bienno



The historic centre preserves its medieval aspect, with crenellated towers, old houses with loggias and stone gates, a water-powered mill, and the old iron furnaces where it is still possible to see the 17th century forges at work. The town is one of the “Most beautiful small towns in Italy.”
