Arona. San Carlone



There are not many towns that can boast a gigantic cusctode angel watching over them. The majestic statue of St Charles Borromeo towers on the hill not too far from the town centre of Arona. More than 23 metres high, with a pedestal of almost 12, it is one of the tallest indoor statues in the world, second only to the Statue of Liberty. Thanks to its openings at eye level, ears and from small windows along its robe, it is possible to admire the view of the lake.
