What to expect

Isola Madre is the biggest of the Verbano islands. The green vegetation and the palace rise from the blue water.

Isola Madre was the first island to be inhabited since when Earl Lancillotto Borromeo settled here, turning it into a place of delights and enjoying the mild weather.

Nowadays, the island is known internationally for its wonderful botanical collections.

The Gardens

With a British style, the botanical garden includes rare vegetable plants from all over the world. Visitors can enjoy a stroll along the shady boulevards and take in the stunning panoramic views by telescope, to observe its details. The impressive seasonal blooming shows the hard work of the many gardeners who preserve this natural beauty.

The Palace

Chinas and liveries, paintings, richly decorated tapestries and brocades are the precious details of this mansion, opened to the public in 1978.
