The most important villages are Magugnano, Sommavilla, Porto, Castello, Maringa, Assenza and Castelletto. The further small villages are scattered in the mountains and are usually made of a small amount of buildings whose name always starts with "Ca" (house).
Island of Trimelone
Castelletto, the largest village, has a wide, picturesque old town centre. Being still a young municipal district, tourism has not flowered yet completely and this is an aspect that makes this locality special. In front of Assenza rises the small island of Trimelone that used to be a military deposit during the First and Second World War. The small harbour villages are known for their fish specialities
Olive trees and cypresses
The climate is very mild, the temperatures are influenced by the water of the Lake. The vegetation goes from olive trees to cypresses, from oleanders to almond trees on the lakeshore, while in the hinterland you can find cedar and chestnut groves. Furthermore, on the slopes of the Monte Baldo, vegetation is made of larches and pines. In Castelletto di Brenzone, the weekly market takes place on Tuesday, while in Assenza it is organised on Thursday.
