Gozzano. Tower of Buccione



A picturesque lake like Lake Orta lacks only a castle to become the living representation of a fantasy saga atmosphere. But the lake does have a castle of its own, that of Buccione. Commonly called the Buccione Tower, being in fact the only element still visible of the ancient stronghold. Initially attributed to the Lombard era, it actually seems to date back to a much later period, 12th-14th centuries, as a symbol of the independence of the San Giulio Riviera.
