Il Lago d'Orta e Orta S. Giulio
The Square of the town, on the tip of a green promontory, the background with its the warm color of the old palaces and the leafy chestnut trees make Orta St. Giulio a romantic and evocative glimpse.
In Orta St. Giulio you can visit Palazzetto della Comunità, the central arcades with shops, and the Palace of the Bishop that dominates the island, and the hidden gardens that are reflected in the lake.
Behind the village rises the Sacro Monte di Orta, exalted by Nietzsche as "one of the most beautiful places in the world."
The mountain is located in a beautiful park, nature reserve special, beech, lime scented, and pine trees and offers a beautiful view on the curve of the lake.
