Rocca Borromeo

The citadel, which has been here since the Lombard period (8C), has a courtroom decorated with admirable 14C frescoes evoking the life of archbishop Ottone Visconti. From the Castellana tower, admire the sweeping view over lake Maggiore. The fortress is also home to a Doll and toy museum (Museo della Bambola e del Giocattolo) which charts the history of the doll from the early 19C to the present day.
