Padenghe Castle

Description

The itinerary proposed by GardaConcierge leads back to the lake shore and further north, up to Padenghe sul Garda, where a castle sits on a hill above the town. There are also remains of Roman buildings, on top of which a castle was built in the 9th and 10th century. Rectangular stonework, which also includes a 20 m watchtower, surrounds the entire building.

During renovation work in the 1960s, the stonework was fortified and the moat was filled with soil. Before that, the castle experienced the rule of the Scaliger family, Visconti and the Republic of Venice. The renovation works restored the castle to the appearance it had in the 13th to 14th centuries, when the Della Scala family ruled. The castle can be reached through an arched portal with a drawbridge. Inside its walls, along two streets, stand a few houses; in front of the castle there is a rather large carpark
