“Another B Church”

Reviewed July 18, 2017

After having visited churches in and around Milan & Stresa, we really didn't want see another church, however we were persuaded to visit this one on an island off Orta San Giulio. The church has many frescoes which are quite delightful. The pulpit is very unusual and the church turned out to be worth visiting. Apparently, the island was a monastery and has now been taken over by a nunnery/convent that makes the vestments for the clergy in The Vatican.

Roman Catholic complex in basically the Romanesque style but it is the interior that is impressive with its ancient frescoes & religious art

Spent just over a week in Orta San Giulio and enjoyed every minute, lots to see and plenty of eating places for all budgets, we took a boat across to the Island to visit the Basilica and enjoyed walking around the narrow streets of the Island, you can enjoy a coffee and some thing to eat by the side of lake and just enjoy the scenery over the lake. If you are planning a trip to Italy then this is a town you take time to visit or stay.

Nice place, go there. It will take 60 minutes. You can even eat over there. I normally prefer to eat in Pella but it remains a magical place
