Piemonte isola superiore (dei pescatori)

Port
Isola Superiore
45° 54' 01" N - 008° 31' 13" E

Alone among the islands to be inhabited during all months of the year, it is a small village of fifty people characterized by a small square surrounded by narrow winding streets leading to the promenade on the northern tip of the island. Features are multi-storey houses lots to make the most of limited space: they are almost all with long balconies indispensable for drying fish. As clearly indicated by the name, the activity of fishing is still very much practiced, and you can taste the fresh fruits in one of the many restaurants overlooking lago.The island's history is ancient, we know that it was already inhabited seven hundred years ago. The parish church is dedicated to San Vittore: a mid-August during the procession, the statue of the patron saint is transported by boat around the islands. The quaint little market sells local crafts and attracts many tourists.
