Site n. 21 - Angera Open Air Museum
Angera's southern waterfront is of 19th century design. The shore was filled in, creating the suggestive lawns that give the town an appearance not found elsewhere in the lake.
In 1820 the pedestrian promenade was also added; originally it had three rows of horse-chestnut trees, reduced to two in 1914 when the Angera-Varese tramline (now dismantled) was built.
Angera's promenade hosts a market every Thursday morning, and the lawns are used for parties, concerts and sporting events.
