Fragments of the burgh of Orta San Giulio
The origins of this beautiful burgh on Lake Orta, about 20km from Arona, date back to the 6th Century and even before. After various disputes between ruling families of the area and the Church throughout the Dark Ages and after, today's main urban morphology of the historical centre was shaped during the 17th and 18th century with some buildings dating back to even the 16th century. The Island of San Giulio in front of Orta's lake front which I posted some posts ago, hosts a few private villa's (one of which the proprietors open up for concerts in Spring). The main building on the island is a monastery of an enclosed order of nuns.
