The embarkment is in Piazza Marconi in Stresa but, upon request, we can organize it from one of the nearby towns.
We'll navigate to the Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso Ballaro. Clinging to the rocks that overhang the lake, the monastery is an incredible sight. Recently restored and opened to the public, the Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso Ballaro is a complex of three buildings dating back to the 13th century, dedicated to Saint Catherine of Alexandria by founder Alberto Besozzi of Arolo, who found salvation on these rocks after a shipwreck. Over the centuries the monastery has been home to various communities of monks.
