Orta San Giulio. Ascent to the Motta



This short cobbled street is one of Orta's most atmospheric streets. In the few metres that make it up, starting from its departure in Piazza Motta, it boasts at its top the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, whose present form seems to date back to the 14th century. Moreover, some of the town's most beautiful and historic buildings stand along this street: Palazzo Gemelli, the House of the Dwarfs and Palazzo Penotti Ubertini frame the descent from the church down to the lake.
