Religious and art tours
The Sanctuary of Santa Caterina del Sasso stands on a peak over the Lake, the Lago Maggiore and represents one of the most fascinating sites of the lombard shore of the lake.
According to legend, the sanctuary was built in the twelfth century by a wealthy merchant survived to a shipwreck.
The Hermitage of Santa Caterina is a secular destination of pilgrimages and it houses cycles of fourteenth century frescoes of particular interest.
The monastery includes a main church and two convents, perched on a rocky cliff. You can take an elevator to the site, or trek down a long staircase. For the full experience, take a boat across the lake.
