Lake Orta, among the most romantic in Italy, is lined with characteristic towns and hamlets, each with a unique atmosphere. The town of Orta San Giulio, listed as one of the most beautiful in Italy, rises on the shore of the lake with the same name. In front, you can admire the picturesque Isola San Giulio, dominated by the monastery Mater Ecclesiae and the Cathedral of San Giulio, the most important Romanesque monument in the Novara province.
Above the town of Orta San Giulio is the magnificent Sacro Monte, dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi with 21 chapels, part of the nine Pre-Alpine sacred mountains of Piedmont and Lombardy and declared a UNESCO World Heritage.
Orta San Giulio will charm you with its historical beauty, ancient houses decorated with frescoes and narrow medieval alleys.
