Torri del Benaco at Lake Garda

In the idyllic locality of Torri del Benaco, professionality and hospitality are the alpha and the omega for a unique holiday in Italy.


 
The picturesque village Torri del Benaco is situated in the province of Verona, located about 38 km from Verona, and consists of the small villages Albisano, Pai, Crero and Ca' Tronconi.

The historical centre is surrounded by medieval walls and towers. In proximity to the small harbour there are the "Palzzo del Consiglio della Gardesana", built in the 14th century today a well known hotel and the "Castello Scaligero", residence of the ethnographical museum showing the first exhibition about freshwater fishing and the "Limonaia", a lemon garden which dates back to the year 1760.

Further places of interest are the baroque church "Santi Pietro e Paolo", with its incredible 18th century organ and the small church "S.S. Trinità".

Worth seeing is also the clock tower previously known as "Torre del Comun" and in medieval times meeting point of the "Vicina", a convention of all family heads negotiating about joint business, which is in vicinity of the "Gardesana" street.

In the small village of Pai, you can still see the traces of the fortress, destroyed by Frederick Redbeard. In proximity of Pai, you can visit the caves "Grotte La Tanella", where you will admire enchanting stalactites and stalagmites, which were shaped during the centuries.

The small town of Albisano is set above Torri del Benaco and it offers a marvellous panorama on Lake Garda.

Tourism is a very important economic factor as well as the cultivation of olive groves and wine.

In Torri del Benaco sul Garda the weekly market takes place every Monday.

The village offers excellent hotels and due to the beauty of the town and the landscape the number of tourists is constantly increasing.
