The medieval villages of Lombardy are an extraordinary artistic, historical and cultural patrimony, combined with natural attractive landscapes of great impact. It is a peaceful, antique Lombardy to be discovered, far from the great tourist attractions, but no less charming.

In the province of Varese, Angera is a town that boasts a very ancient history. It became important starting from the Middle Ages, protected by an imposing fortress dominating Lake Maggiore. The old rooms of the castle are enriched with frescoes, paintings and decorations of great value.
