In the Middle Ages Angera was head of a territory that included the towns of both shores of the lake and counted around 20 religious buildings.

On the lakefront, is worth visiting the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Riva, whose construction began in 1657 but was never completed. History of Angera be viewed but also in key military. Already in Roman times the site of the Rocca of Angera was a fortified structure that then became property of the archbishops of Milan. In the thirteenth century the property passed into the hands of the Visconti family, who transformed into a majestic fortress, dominant in the town. In 1449 it was acquired by the Borromeo family, current owners.

The Rocca of Angera is situated in a panoramic position on a spur of limestone rock overlooking the lake is best known for the Hall of Justice, one of the most important examples of Italian painting of the early fourteenth century, and the Doll Museum, the only in Italy and among the most prestigious in Europe.
