THE FORTRESS OF ANGERA: THE LAKE MAGGIORE’S GUARDIAN

 

The Fortress of Angera (La Rocca di Angera) proudly stands on the top of a rocky promontory, above the beautiful village of Angera. It overlooks the entire southern side of Lake Maggiore.

  

 

A nice itinerary inside the fortress leads you to the historical rooms, recently enriched with the Hall of Majolica, an incredible collection of 200 majolica products.

In addition to this, you can enjoy the famous Dolls Collection, an important area of the toy museum of the fortress of Angera.

 

 

The fortress is surrounded by mighty walls that enclose a large garden where precious herbs and flowers are grown, in compliance with the ancient medieval codes.

The entrance and visit of the Fortress are subject to a fee. You can request a guided tour or purchase a cumulative ticket together with the visit of the Borromean Islands and the gardens of Villa Palavicini in Stresa.
