SCaterinaThe Hermitage Santa Caterina del Sasso is located in Leggiuno and is a property of the Varese province. Situated on a rock rising straight from the deep waters of Lake Maggiore, the Hermitage is a spectacular monastery built starting from 13th century.

It is reached for the concert thanks to a boat organized on the occasion by the Festival, leaving Stresa main pier.

From the Santa Caterina pier you can only reach the Hermitage by climbing an 80-steps staircase.

You can otherwise reach the Hermitage by car via Leggiuno with a comfortable lift carved into the rock.
