Arona. Rocca Borromea



Together with its twin Rocca di Angera, the Rocca di Arona was one of the main strategic control points of Lake Maggiore in ancient times. Unfortunately, we only have a few ruins of it after its destruction in 1800 at the hands of the Napoleonic army. Today it houses a park, where you can take relaxing walks and admire the remains of the ancient walls as well as suggestive views of Arona and the southern part of Lake Maggiore.
