Island of San Giulio Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

This tiny (300m long and 160m wide) jewel of an island on Lake Orta houses the Basilica di San Giulio, probably founded in the 4C. Inside there is a lovely 12C ambo (pulpit near the choirstalls), decorated with frescoes by the school of Gaudenzio Ferrari (16C). In the crypt is the shrine of St Julius.

    Une île minuscule, le parcours s'effectue en très peu de temps à travers des ruelles ponctuées d'enseignes gravées de maximes de sagesse monastique. Au détour d'une rue, on découvre fermés par des grilles de ferronnerie, des patios et jardins,avec échappées vers le lac;


    Une grande partie du domaine est inaccessible (belvédère) ou privé!
