Going up to the Sanctuarymeansseeing a magnificent panorama of the lake and the climb – easy and lastinglessthan an hour on foot – takesplace in the middle of nature admiring the votive chapelsalong the path with life-sizestatues.

Sheis the lady of the lake and isone of the mostimportantarchaeologicalareas in NorthernItaly. Here you can walk on footwithoutproblems.
