Lake Orta is a lake in northern Italy, west of Lake Maggiore. It has been so named since the 16th century, but was previously called the Lago di San Giulio, after Saint Julius , the patron saint of the region. Its southern end is about 35 kilometers by rail to the northwest of the city of Novara , while its north end is about 6 kilometers by rail south of the Gravellona-Toce railway station, itself located halfway between Ornavasso and Omegna. Its scenery is characteristically Italian, while the San Giulio island has some picturesque buildings, and takes its name from the local saint, who lived in the 4th century. Wikipedia
