Orta San Giulio. Piazza Motta



The pulsating centre of Orta's life, it is a veritable open-air lounge overlooking the lake. The rectangular square is bordered on its longest sides, on one side by a series of colourful period façades and, on the other, by the shore of the lake itself, the mooring point for ferries to the island. It is very pleasant to enjoy the view of the lake and surrounding mountains, with the island towering in the foreground, comfortably seated on benches sheltered by the shade of large trees. In the northern corner stands the Community Palace, a beautiful 16th-century broletto.
