The village of Mergozzo looks down on to the lake. It is very pleasant to walk on the wonderful promenade or sit outdoors in one of the many bars in any season. In summer you can have a swim or sunbathe on the beach.

In ancient times, this tiny lake was a gulf of Lake Maggiore. Now it is one of the cleanest lakes in Italy, since many years ago the use of motor boats was forbidden.

Its houses, typically made in stone, rest one against the other and are occasionally divided by steep streets that often give way to steps.

Along a medieval mule-track, you reach the small village of Montorfano, lying amidst chestnut woods and proudly featuring the most interesting and best preserved Romanesque church in this area.
