In the hearth of this splendid lake you will find a charming little isle, the so-called “Isola San Giulio”. According to tradition, the island was named after a Christian deacon who was converting this whole area to the Christianity during the 4th century. Legend has it, that the deacon had the very ambitious project of building 100 churches in northern Italy and that, when he was about to build his 100th church, he heard word of an impious island haunted by giant snakes and terrible dragons. Moved by his sacred duty he braved and killed all the monstrous creatures living on the island and built, at last, his 100th church on the isle to protect it from any other impious creature…
