Shell Grotto, Borromea Palace on Lake Maggiore, Lombardy, Italy. The grotto consists of a series of six rooms, and were first conceived in 1685, by Vitaliano the Sixth, with the aid of the architect Filippo Cagnulo. It took 100 years to complete them.In the cavern-like coolness, the rooms provide a refuge from the summer heat. Every inch of space, including ceilings, floors, and archways, is covered in a mosaic of black and white shells and pebbles.
