LAKE ORTA-ISLAND OF SAN GIULIO, ITALY
BALZAC said … ". a lovely little Lake at the foot of Monte Rosa, an island situated well on calmissime waters, flirtatious and simple (….) is to the Lake, for a time a cloister and life … … "
Legend has it that the island of san Giulio in Orta Lake, was once dominated by a big snake that had destroyed everything … but when Julius, a Traveler approached the Holy Lake drove the snake, he laid his coat over water and salendovi almost had a boat headed towards the island without getting wet. …. Tired and near death wanted to elect that place as his final resting place and decided to build his 100th and final Church. The island appears as a place of great mysticism. Today a wonderful place to spend an enchanted vacation. ….(…..)
“un delizioso piccolo Lago ai piedi del Monte Rosa, un’isola ben situata sull’acque calmissime, civettuola e semplice (….) è quello il lago, ad un tempo un chiostro e la vita ….”cosi diceva il grande BALZAC
l’ISOLA APPARE COME UN LUOGO DI GRANDE MISTICISMO….. OGGI UN POSTO INCANTEVOLE PER TRASCORRERE UNA BREVE VACANZA.
