Rocca Borromeo of Angera is a XIV century fortified building located on the southern shores of Lake Maggiore in Lombardy. It is one of the best preserved castles of the Lombardy region.

Along with the Rocca di Arona was one of the main points of strategic control of Lake Maggiore in ancient times.

From a military point of view, in fact, lying on a limestone hill 200 meters high, dominates not only the southern part of Lake Maggiore, but also has a good view of the Alps, and this allowed a control also in case of invasion of transalpine enemies.

 


Rocca Borromeo is particularly known for the Hall of Justice,  one of the oldest and most important examples of the Western Middle Ages civil topic painting, dated back to the end  of  12th century  and the Doll Museum, unique in Italy and among the most prestigious of Europe.

 

Currently , Rocca Borromeo is the most exclusive location of Lake Maggiore and is the place preferred by the European royal families for their most exclusive events (wedding of Beatrice Borromeo and Pierre Casiraghi - son of Princess Caroline of Monaco) and by the most prestigious business Italian families. And also... Rocca Borromeo  is a destination wedding for soccer players and  star-system.
