Borromeo Palace, Italy

From series “The Most Wonderful Castles and Palaces”
Year: 16th century.

On the Italian island of Isola-Bella is the beautiful Palace Borromeo, whose design is uniquely beautiful and impressive. The beautiful baroque palace, built in the 16th century, is located on the almost entire territory of the tiny island and forms a unified complex with the incredibly beautiful park zone. The palace was ordered by King Charles III. Who gave the chic building on the tiny uninhabited island of his wife Izabelle.

Borromeo Palace, Italy The design of the surrounding territory was done just as carefully as building the palace. In addition to the building, there were some excellent views and terraces from which you can enjoy the panorama of Lake Magiore. The adjoining territory is adorned with the exotic plants that were made for the garden of England. Among the luxuriant undergrowths of the rare trees and flowers you can see many beautiful sculptures and fountains. One of the most important modern peculiarities of the castle park complex are the rare white peacocks.

A unique feature of the beautiful palace, hidden behind its unobtrusive walls, is the unique interiors, which include the rare marble and wood varieties, gold and precious stones. Throne Hall is considered to be the most magnificent, and in the Gobelinsaal you can see the unique masterpieces of Flemish art embroidered with gold. On the lower floor of the building are the unique shell caves decorated with the natural stalactites and shells of the whimsical forms. Isola Bella Island and the wonderful Palace have served as a venue for classical music concerts for several years. Next - Le Palais Ideal
