Rocca di Manerba del Garda

Stronghold Lake Garda, Italy

One of the most important medieval fortresses of the whole Lake Garda Rocca di Manerba del Garda

Located in a bay between Punta Belvedere and Punta Portese, on the west shore of Lake Garda, Manerba del Garda is set in the heart of the Valtenesi, a green area between Salò and Padenghe, very famous for its wine production. The few rests of the Fortress of Manerba, one of the most important medieval fortresses of the whole Lake Garda territory, destroyed by the Venetians in 1575, rise on a high stony block. From here, you can enjoy a breath-taking view on the lake, on the surrounding hills, on the Monte Baldo until your gaze reaches Torbole - Nago. Worth a visit are the Archaeological Museum and the churches rich with frescos, which witness the antique religions and cultural traditions passed in this area along the centuries. One of the favorite destinations is the idyllic Island of San Biagio, also known as the Island of the Rabbits. The natural park under the "Rocca", which hosts more than 400 types of plants, is of impressive beauty too.
