Piemonte angera

Port
P.zzale della Vittoria, 3
45° 46' 14" N - 008° 34' 08" E

Angera, developed on the coastal plain and on the hill that hangs over it, was originated in prehistoric times as evidenced by the finds of Mesolithic age found in a cave on the hill, known as the Wolf's Lair or Cave of Mithras (from cult of Eastern deities practiced in Roman times) when the center was called Stazzona.
”Rocca” authentic local symbol, developed spectacularly along the rocky cliff, overlooking the lake dotted with chestnut trees, and faces the isle of Partegora, surrounded by reeds, the only island in the Lombardy side.
Between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries the residence of the Visconti and the so-called wing Scala, were added to the imposing tower to reach between five and six hundred, the current system in U.
Important examples of historic and artistic value are preserved: the frescoes of the fourteenth century in the great Hall of Justice and those of Gothic-friendly from the Palazzo Borromeo in Milan.
In recent years, moreover, the building is headquarters of an interesting Doll Museum, a collection of about two hundred dolls and toys from the private collection of Princess Bona Borromeo.
