Cannons protect an artificial harbor, which at one time was for the private use of the Borromeo family.
The palace includes a large round room, of which this shot shows only a part.
The gardens include this terraced pyramid decorated by numerous statues, and of course, surrounded by tourists.
There was another flat area on the other side of the pyramid, with a few more tourists.
Like Isola Madre, Isola Bella had a few peacocks. Unlike those Isola Madre, Isola Bella's peacocks were all white.
This one strutted his stuff.
After visiting the gardens, we went back to the boat for the ride back to Stresa, thus concluding a fun but tiring day of sightseeing.
