Bastione

Historical Building Lake Garda, Italy

One Riva del Garda’s symbols Bastione

The Bastione, in grey stone, situated at the foot of Mount Rocchetta, is one Riva del Garda’s symbols, dominion of the city and the Lake Garda. It was built in the early XVI century, when the Venetian domination over Riva ceased, to guarantee more security to the underlying village and its inhabitants. It was destroyed in 1703 by the French troops under leadership of general Vendôme undermining the main body and making it unusable. It is easily reachable in 15-20 minutes walking along a paved road that winds through the black pinewood of Rocchetta. The Bastione has recently been restored, supervised by the Architectural Heritage Office of the Autonomous Province of Trento. The view from the Bastione, with the town, the lake and the mountains all around, is unforgettable.
