This holiday resort is on the banks of Lake Maggiore. It is home to some lavish 19C villas, among which the Henfrey-Branca villa (visible from the lake) which was honoured by a visit from Queen Victoria and whose outline is reminiscent of an English castle. The town is home to a Romanesque parish church and an octagonal Renaissance baptistery.
