The fossils of Besano
In 1993 the fossil of a Triassic aquatic reptile dating back to about 235 million years was found near the town. It was named Besanosaurus. Many other fossils have emerged from the fossiliferous field of Besano-Monte San Giorgio, known and appreciated since the mid-nineteenth century.
