Middle Ages and beaches among the olive groves
The beach a few meters from the olive grove is not a usual landscape. In this corner of Lake Garda, on the contrary, past, present and holidays coexist in a picturesque landscape that retains all the poetry of a beautiful place that tries to resist modern times, also thanks to a human factor madly in love with the area. In this walking olive oil tour, you will be able to retrace the history and culture of the place, which tells all the magic and charm of this area. Last but not least, you can taste the local Garda Olive Oil and experience a visit to the oil mill.
We start from the center of the village and walk towards the Santuario Madonna del Carmine completed in 1491. From there, we descend toward the beach in a few minutes. Then back on the path among impressive landscapes on the lake and hermitages of another era. It is time to reach the olive mill for a visit and taste the territory through an unexpected exploration of Garda Bresciano Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
