Torri del Benaco

The picturesque town of Torri del Benaco is located on the Veronese shore of Lake Garda and comprises the small villages of Albisano, Pai, Crero and Cà Tronconi. Strolling through the narrow paths of this town you feel like time has stopped in a bygone era without the hustle and bustle of our days.

The historic town centre is surrounded by medieval walls and towers and near the small harbor there are many interesting places that worth a visit: Palazzo del Consiglio della Gardesana (14th century), now a famous hotel, Castello degliScaligeri, seat of the Ethnographic Museum with the first Italian exhibition of freshwater fishes, and the Limonaia, a garden with a lemon grove dating back to 1760.

Particularly interesting near the Gardesana main street is the clock tower, known in the past as Torre del Comune (municipal tower), which in medieval times was the meeting place of the Vicina, a gathering of heads of families who debated bartering issues.

In the village of Pai there are the remains of the fortress razed to the ground by Barbarossa (Redbeard) and in the surroundings it is possible to visit Grotte La Tanella, natural caves with stalactites and stalagmites formed over the centuries.

Albisano is located above Torri del Benaco and offers a magnificent, one of a kind, view of Lake Garda. This village is often chosen by couples who want to realize the dream to say “I do” in the charming little church overlooking the terrace of this tiny and unique location.

Tourism is the main activity of the area, together with vineyard and olive tree growing.

All the villages offer excellent accommodation facilities and the number of visitors keeps growing every year due to the beauty of the site, the natural landscape and the endless opportunities for tours and excursions ofered by the surrounding territory.

Torri del Benaco and its hamlets are the ideal destination for tourists looking for antique flavors, who love the magic atmosphere of the old times.
