Intra is the main section of Verbania, the largest community in the area. Not much is left from its medieval period. But you can still explore its narrow streets and small squares lined with typical 2 and 3 story houses and visit its historic chapels.

Today’s town offers a scenic lakefront promenade and a walk though small baroque villas with gardens. It’s also a typical Italian shopping district; with jewelry, clothing and houseware the most common goods on display in the old part of town.
