This beautiful little monastic complex visible only from the water is well worth a visit for its frescoes and its sense of tranquillity, but make sure you come at opening time; for most of the day, crowds swamp the place. The site dates back to 1170, when Alberto Besozzi, from nearby Arolo, was shipwrecked in a storm, invoked the help of St Catherine of Alexandria and survived. He subsequently withdrew to a cave here, in the cliff of Sasso B llaro, to devote his life to prayer. Local townspeople began construction of a votive chapel shortly afterwards, and the complex grew. By 1620 fourteen monks lived here, but a suppression decree in 1770 forced the last six out. The sanctuary crumbled until it was declared a national monument in 1914 and restored.
