Lake Maggiore’s Monastery

Italy by Drone: Lake Maggiore's Monastery - Shot with DJI Inspire2 by @electriclife. Lake Maggiore's Santa Caterina del Sasso Ballaro Monastery, Italy.The HD video was shot using a DJI Inspire2 drone and a Zenmuse X5S Camera.Clinging to a rock face directly overhanging the lake, the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso is certainly one of the most charming sights of Lago Maggiore. The entrance to the church is through a portico consisting of four round, renaissance-style arches. The structure of the current building is truly unique, the fusion of three chapels, originally built separately in three different eras. There are numerous pictorial cycles both inside and outside the Church, mainly covering the period running between the 14th and the 19th century. Art and history merge wonderfully in this most striking of natural frames, almost a balcony leaning out towards the Borromeo Gulf, Stresa and the islands.The first structure found after entering the Hermitage is the Southern Convent (14th - 17th century), with interesting frescos in the fireplace hall, then comes the small convent (13th century), where the area below the windows of the first floor is decorated by a long 17th-century fresco inspired by the Dance of Death, and finally the Church, which incorporates the Chapel of Santa Caterina.
