The name Mezzegra derives from the Latin words 'in medi agrum o in medio agros', meaning 'in the middle or amongst the fields', due to the location of the settlements. The town is situated on the western banks of Lake Como, in that zone of central Lario known as Tremezzina. The country wards making up the municipality of Mezzegra are Azzano, Bonzanigo, Giulino, Mugnano, Pola and Portezza. In the past, the area was noted for the quality of its bread but today is now famous for the capture and tragic end of Benito Mussolini and Claretta Petacci.
Pay a visit to the church of Sant'Abbondio, dating back to the end of the 1600ís, with its elegant Baroque facade and its precious canvases (17th and 18th century) and its most beautiful marble Baroque altars. Close to the presbytery and the sacristy are visible traces of the old Roman chapel which preceded it. In one of the two surrounding annexes of the church, plaster works are preserved attributed to Pietro Silva and frescos possibly by Fiamminghino, while in the other, which is also decorated with plaster work and prized frescos, there is a large, decorated wooden altar dating from the 17th to 18th centuries.
