Castelnuovo del Garda

Castelnuovo del Garda has a short beach on the lake, and was already inhabited in the prehistorical age. There are still many signs of its distant past such as its archaeological remains and the villas built during the dominion of the Serenissima (Republic of Venice), medieval parish churches and neoclassical churches, forts built under the Austrian dominion and the monuments from the Italian Risorgimento. In a dominating position at the centre of the town is Viscontea Tower, the symbol of the town, and all that remains of the ancient castle built in 1387 by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, Lord of Milan. The bell tower was built later and today has 14 bells that create one of the most complete concerts of bells in Verona
