situated at the N.W. end of the lake, here resembling a fjord, at the
base of the precipitous Rocchetta (4976 ft.). On the hillside. high
above the town, rises a ruined watch-tower (Bastione) of 1508,

affording pleasant summer-quarters; the heat is tempered by the
lake, and in the afternoon the town lies in the shadow of the hills.
