Garda, one of its most beautiful spots. The temperate Mediterranean climate, the clear water and the beautiful mountains form an ideal backdrop for your holiday on Lake Garda. Lake Garda is a favourite destination for all sportspeople: we offer windsurfing, sailing, mountain biking, climbing and trekking. The town is surrounded on one side by sheer limestone cliffs jutting up like a wall protecting it and its ancient hilltop castle. Main sights: Sanctuary and Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, built in 1475-1492. It houses a wooden statue of the VIrgin Mary dating to the 15th century – Collegiata dell’Assunta, begun in 1613. Francis II, the last King of Two Sicilies, was provisionally buried here in the late 19th century, after his death at Arco in 1894 – Church of Sant’Apollinare, with 14th century frescoes – Palazzo Marchettii (16th century). It has a portal attributed to Giulio Romano – Palazzo dei Panni (late 17th century).
