HERMITAGE OF SANTA CATERINA DEL SASSO AT THE LAKE MAGGIORE
The sensation of travelling back in time.
This journey starts at the lakeside of Arolo, passing beside the old port and reaching the old town by climbing the white stone steps (also possible using the new lift or by boat).
Continuing north, you reach the hermitage rock of Santa Catherina from which you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the lake, going from Angera to the Borromeo gulf. The Hermitage has recently been restored and visitors have the opportunity of admiring the beautiful wall paintings from the 14th to the 17th century.
In the souvenir shop you can purchase handmade articles created by the Dominican monks who live here.
