Cradle of traditions
The historical and cultural heritage of Lake Garda
Cultural heritage is the result of the succession of all historical periods. Like the rest of the Garda area, Costermano, an ancient feudal hamlet of the Monastery of Santa Giulia of Brescia, is locked in an embrace with places of extreme beauty and great interest. Of particular interest: Marciaga with its seventeenth-century sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Soccorso and the evocative "senge" where you can admire rock engravings, Castion with the Romanesque church of San Verolo of the XII-XII century and Albarè with the sumptuous Villa Torri Giuliari and its timeless elegance.
An example of ancient beauty is Villa della Torre. Considered one of the most important places of the Italian Renaissance, it is the site of numerous meetings with Italian and European intellectuals. In Colà di Lazise, the passage from the eighteenth to the nineteenth century leaves its precious testimony in the Villa dei Cedri, a majestic neoclassical building, today a natural spa, immersed in a park of 13 hectares. Destinations of great artistic and cultural interest are Verona and Sirmione. The former is known as the city of Romeo and Juliet, the latter is known as the Pearl of Garda for its delightful peninsula.
