Isola Madre - A Superb Botanical Garden

Isola Madre, located in the centre of theBorromean Gulf,is the largest of the islands on Lake Maggiore.
The thing that first strikes approaching visitors is the 16th century villa, one of the first residences of the Borromeo counts on the lake. The house was restored in 1978 and opened as a museum, full of history, furnishings, tapestries and paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as a unique Marionette Theatre.

Isola Madre and its garden offer you the chance to immerse yourself in nature. The grounds are filled with colours and flowers, like rhododendrons, magnolias, azaleas and others from all over the world. Pheasants, peacocks and other colourful birds roam freely in the garden.
