Cascata di Ferrera or Cascata Fermona (according to locals) is a gorgeous waterfall in the pittoreske village of Ferrera di Varese in the region Lombardia, Italy.
From Ferrera di Varese it is a short walk to a scenic spot where the river Margorabbia jumps into a really wonderful pool, the perfect place to swim. Parking is possible at the school in Via Battisti (gps 45.934755, 8.786328). There are signs „cascata“ pointing to the small parking. From here it is less then a 5 minute walk to a small waterfall. From here it is a short walk to the bigger waterfall.
Cascata di Ferrera/Cascata Fermona is located near the touristic Lago Maggiore but the surrounding of the waterfall is still an undiscovered gem. From Ponte Tres it is only a 30 minute drive.
After heavy rainfall Cascata di Ferrera/Cascata Fermona turns into an aggressive monster where you can feel the power of the water. In summertime there are periods with extreme heavy showers, a perfect time to visit the waterfall (at least when in it dry again).
