The Rocca Borromeo

The Rocca Borromeo of Angera, an unusual example of a completely preserved medieval fortified building, rises on a spur of calcareous rock that has always dominated the southern part of Lake Maggiore. This imposing construction houses items that bear important witness to local history, which is revisited thanks to the marvellous cycle of frescoes of the Sala della Giustizia (Justice Hall) dating from the end of the13th century.

You can only reach the Sala della Giustizia by climbing two flights of stairs.
