LOMBARDIA garda

Garda is the charming resort town situated in the center of a gulf enclosed by the slopes of Mount Baldo and the morainic elevations.

Already inhabited during prehistoric times (proof of which may be found in the necropolis and the rock engravings found along the path leading to Torri del Benaco), it became an important center for the Romans, the Longobardo and the French.
A story is tied to the no longer existing "Rocca" (rock): Berengario II, Marquis of Ivrea, supposedly held prisoner the Queen Adelaide, widow of King Lotario, guilty of having refused the marriage proposal of Berengario's son. She was eventually able to escape and take refuge in Canossa. In the ancient core of Garda there is a medieval village facing the three lined Lakeshore with the English-style park of Villa Albertini at the end.
This is one of Lake Garda's largest complexes, and despite various transformations over the course of time, it has still preserved the look of a medieval castle with four crenellated towers. It was here on the 10th of June, 1848, that Carlo Alberto received the act of annexation of Lombardia and Piedmont.
A walkable distance from Garda is the Eremo dei Camaldolesi (Camaldolesi Heritage) just near the famous "Rocca".
