ROCCA D'ANGERA

ROCCA D'ANGERA GUARDING LAKE MAGGIORE

 

The Rocca d’Angera proudly stands on a spur of rock that dominates the southern shores of Lake Maggiore.

Inside the Rocca, a delightful itinerary entices you to discover the great historical halls, recently enriched by the addition of the Sala della Maioliche, an extraordinary collection of 300 pieces of Majolica, along with the Doll and Toy Museum, is one of the greatest in Europe.

To create a perfect frame for the Museum, the exquisite Medieval Garden, full of symbolic meaning, was generated after accurate studies on ancient codices, old documents and pictures.
