The first written document mentioning "Insulae curtis" dates from 905, when the island was listed among the properties of the monastery of S. Salvatore in Brescia. The family Oldofredi, rulers of Iseo, built on the island two strongholds in the 11th-12th centuries. Members of the powerful #Visconti family came here to hunt in 1400. In 1497 Francesco Sforza, duke of Milan, gave the islanders some #fishing rights and reduced the taxes. In the same year, Caterina Cornaro, queen of Cyprus, resided a while on the island. During the 19th century the main industry on the island was the construction of boats and the manufacturing of fishing nets. . . . . . . . . . #island #lake #peschiera #harbour #boat #tourism #travel #travelphotography #nature #naturelovers #enjoylife #respect4nature #hiking #dronelovers #beautifulspot italy.drone italy.vacations italy_bestplaces #drone #dronephotography #dronestagram #dji #mavic dmflyservice #fromabove visitlombardy #roadtrip #fun #vacation #italy 🇮🇹 #eu 🇪🇺
