Castle on the island Loreto
Located on Lake Iseo in northern Italy, a small private island Loreto is famous for its castle. A monastery, built here the end of the 5th century, existed for several centuries. However, finally, people abandoned it in the 16th century. Meanwhile, the island, after changing several owners, belonged to Royal Navy captain Vincenzo Richeri who built a Gothic castle in 1910 and a marina with two small lighthouses. Recently, the island became famous thanks to George Clooney, who already having residence nearby, was going to buy it, but for some reason he changed his mind.
