Castelnuovo del Garda is a municipal district in the province of Verona. The village is 18 km far from the provincial capital.
Castelnuovo del Garda is set in the middle of the morainic hills, among olive groves and vineyards. In this picturesque area, the famous wine Moro del Castel is produced.
Just a small part of the village is directly placed on the lakeshore, between Lazise and Peschiera. For tourists the Lido Campanello and the Lido Ronchi are an ideal place to take a bath in the crystalline lake’s waters.
Various archaeological excavations witness the prehistorical occupation of the area. In the past, Castelnuovo was known as Beneventum, to become later Quadrivium, because of its geographical position among the four cities of Verona, Mantua, Brescia and Trento. In the 12th century it became Castrum Novum, which slowly changed to Castelnuovo (from 1867 Castelnuovo di Verona and from 1970 Castelnuovo del Garda).
The most important places of interest
are the small church "Madonna degli Angeli", the "Villa Cossali Sella", the War Memorial and the tower "Torre Viscontea".
