“Visit the home of the Boromeo family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The Rocca - a castle - sits on a hill overlooking the southern most part of Lake Maggiore. A dominant medieval building, built by the Boromeo family in order to control all trade passing up and down the lake. Contain a standing exhibition of dolls, and normally has another exhibition of some sort of another. Add to that a really interesting restaurant, plus a superb view of the Lake, and it really is a must place to visit.
