Lago D’orta or Lake Orta

I received this gorgeous postcard from a fellow postcrosser all the way from Northern Italy!

According to wikipedia: Lake Orta (Italian: Lago d’Orta) is a lake in northern Italy west of Lake Maggiore. This place is located around the lake are Orta San Giulio, built on a peninsula projecting from the east shore of the lake, Omegna at its northern extremity, Pettenasco to the east, and Pella to the west. It is supposed that the lake is the remnant of a much larger sheet of water by which originally the waters of the Toce flowed south towards Novara.
