Tignale Lake Garda
Tignale on Lake Garda is made of six neighbour communities connected among them by a panoramic road: Gardola, Piovere, Prabione, Aer, Olzano and Oldesio. The municipal district is in the heart of the Parco Alto Garda Bresciano, in a marvellous mountain landscape. The picturesque locality is set on an upland with the view on Lake Garda, in the middle of idyllic forests and woods. On the slopes of the hills, there are the typical terraces, on which, thanks to the Mediterranean climate, olives are cultivated for the whole year. Around Tignale there is the Natural Park "Lago di Garda Superiore", which offers uncountable paths and cycle tracks (for e-bikes too). Beyond that, there are guided Nordic walking trips in the middle of nature.
An excellent activity for families is the adventure park Flying Frog
in Tignale. Here there are many tracks for participants in every age that assure fun and entertainment. The tracks have also funny names as for example "The Unrestrained Frog" or "The Flying Frog". The old town centre in Tignale has a particular charm; some houses have picturesque stone portals. Particularly worth visiting
is the 17th century parish church "Santuario della Madonna di Montecastello", set on a rock jutting out directly on the lake and that is 700 m high.
In Tignale, you have to taste the typical dessert called "spongadì". Here, fine eating accompanied by a good wine is at the first place. Worth visiting are also the lemon greenhouses on the "Riviera dei Limoni" and the numerous grottoes in the Tignale territory. Here you can find an active oil press, whose first quality oil
has a great value. In Tignale you can spend evenings rich with fun and entertainment, for involving events as for example concerts, medieval markets and expositions are not missing. There is also the famous truffle party, "Festa del Tartufo".
