  • Truly enormous statue, 35 m high, from which, if you get to head an internal staircase, you can admire the breathtaking view. The ticket costs 6 euros in order to Board. Highly recommended

  • With approximately thirty-five meters high, San Carlone dominates the city is Lake, somewhat unknown as an attraction (such as the statue of liberty), but of great beauty, surely, when it will be open to the public,

  • Definitely recommended for those who happened to pass by! Fun and unique! Not recommended for people who suffer from claustrophobia and Vertigo ... almost vertical stairs located inside and let you get to the top inside of the statue make striking attraction!
