Island of San Giulio

Recommended
This tiny (300m long and 160m wide) jewel of an island on Lake Orta houses the Basilica di San Giulio, probably founded in the 4C. Inside there is a lovely 12C ambo (pulpit near the choirstalls), decorated with frescoes by the school of Gaudenzio Ferrari (16C). In the crypt is the shrine of St Julius.
