The gentle shores of the lake

Pella is a charming village located on the western shore of Lake Orta. It is one of the oldest Cusian towns rich in history. Pella, in fact, has an important past behind it, during which it saw both the episcopal jurisdiction and that of the Savoy family

San Filiberto

This religious monument is located in the municipality of Pella, on the western shore of Lake Orta and is located not far from the historic center of the town. The San Filiberto complex is certainly worth a visit. The Romanesque church faces east towards the landing on the lake shore, from which the boat processions still depart to the island of San Giulio. A majestic layout characterizes it, while a series of nineteenth-century chapels, depicting the via crucis, surrounds it.

It is the only church in Italy dedicated to San Filiberto and its bell tower is the oldest on the western coast of Lake Orta, dating back to the years between 1075 and 1110. You certainly cannot miss a visit to this church which is one of the most spectacular of Lake Orta.
