You may pass through the five different buildings in the castle, admiring the paintings and furniture in the different rooms: Sala del Buon Romano (Hall of the Good Roman), della Mitologia (of Mythology), delle Cerimonie (of Ceremonies), di San Carlo (of San Carlo), dei Fasti Borromeo (of Borromeo’s Pomp).

Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso

L'eremo di Santa Caterina del SassoArt and history are the best ways to enjoy a trip to Stresa. It’s precisely here that these elements merge seamlessly in the most striking of natural frames, as if they were a balcony leaning out towards Stresa and the islands. The church has a truly unique structure, the fusion of three chapels, originally built separately in three different eras, and is adorned with frescos dating from between the 14th and the 19th centuries. The bell tower, dating back to the 14th century, can also be reached by a new elevator built into the rock: 51 metres high, connected to a horizontal exit tunnel that comes out onto a panoramic view of Lago Maggiore. This is definitely a unique and comfortable way to admire the Hermitage and the countryside! MORE INFORMATION
