Lago d’Orta, Italy (Day 3 – Part 2)

Lago d’Orta is one of the smallest and least known lakes, in proximity to Lago Maggiore’s west. It has a cute little Island. On the outskirts of the village which – well you’ve guessed right – is also called Orta. But the real sight is just a bit about the lake – and it’s called Sacro Monte, the sacred mountain. On a little patch of forest are scattered no less than 20 chapels. On each is a little hand which shows the way to the next chapel so that you can walk along all 20 in a circuit path.
