The mural paintings, remarkable. Not to be missed. The penalty is that it is relatively close to how, where we stayed, but it cost us to arrive almost two hours. The roads are very slow. A lot of traffic and very slow. But it was worth it.
Abbarbicato su uno strapiombo di parete rocciosa a picco sul lago, l'Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso è senza dubbi uno tra gli scenari più suggestivi del Lago Maggiore da non perdere more »Perched on a cliff of rocky wall overlooking the lake, the hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso is undoubtedly one of the most evocative scenery of Lake Maggiore not to be missed
Great views of Lago Maggiore. Free entrance to the small church and free parking. Available place for picnic and one cafeteria with a terrace. There is an elevator to avlid the long stairs for few euros. I recommend to pass by but don't expect more that the views
A real pearl in italy. 800 years old monastery. Finally they decided to keep it open the full day and dont close it lunchtine. If you go on a friday or out of peak days and season you will be able to enjoy it all for yourself. Walk the stairs, dont be afraid and enjoy the peacefulness of the lake with its palmtrees and beauties
