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).
