  • Isle of Loreto




The Isle of Loreto rises in the middle of Lake Iseo, north of MonteIsola, and it is private property. At the end of the 15th century the isle was purchased by the nuns of Saint Chiara from Brescia, where they set up their nunnery. The building was though dismissed by 1580 when, during the visit of Carlo Borromeo, the presence of a hermit named Pietro is remembered. In 1910 Knight Vincenzo Richieri built a neo-gothic castle on the island. Around it a yew garden was planted, a small port and two small lighthouse towers were built.
