Sunrise Island Martana – Bolsena Lake (VT) Italy

Opposite the town of Marta (VT), from which it takes its name, the island Martana would guard the remains of Santa Cristina, belonging to the church because they do not fall prey to the barbarians.
The island Martana was also at the center of the tragic history of Amalasunta, queen of the Goths, who took power on the death of Theodoric: after being duped on the island, there was murdered by his cousin Teodato.
The island is uninhabited, was once the site of an Augustinian monastery. He is currently private property and therefore it is not possible to visit.
