Isola Pescatori (Fishermen's Island)



The only one of the three Borromean islands to be permanently inhabited, this small community fascinates with the liveliness and warmth of its narrow streets. Of the two main streets, one runs through the village and the other runs alongside the lake. On one side of the little island you can relax in the shade of the large plane trees, while on the other side you can admire the view of Isola Bella, which is only a few metres away. The church of San Vittore, dating back to the year 1000 but completely rebuilt during the 17th and 18th centuries, is worth a visit.
