Menaggio during the war of the ten years was opposed to Como, it suffered pillages and destructions in 1400 and 1500 and, as a result of that, its walls, that defended the village, were pulled down. Here, the sculptor Leone Leoni (1509-1590)was born. He was said improperly the Aretino.

Between the churches, the poligonale Sanctuary of the Madonna of the Peace (in Nobiallo fraction deserves a signal) built up in 1660 in order to celebrate the Peace of the Pyrenees (1659), a stage of the Spanish forfeiture.
