Travel Tips for Brescia

Brescia Dining and Drinking

by venteeocho

Because of its rather particular geographic location, in an area with a mild, arid, windy microclimate, the province of Brescia, between the southern shores of Lake Garda and that of Iseo, is able to boast of vineyards and olive groves, which form the basis of the most varied wine and food based traditions in the whole of Lombardy. Because of this, and the areas natural resources, Brescia has become a real mecca for wine tourism, bringing together wine and other traditional products that are just as valued.

Let us start with mentioning a few typical products. Bagoss cheese, matured and produced in Val Canonica, Val Trompia and Val Sabbia, which is eaten in small shavings or roasted on a hotplate. Silter cheese on the other hand, is typical of the lower Val Camonica and the prealpine area to the east of Lake Iseo.

Also typical of the Val Camonica is the breast of mutton sausage, produced from June to September during the period when mutton meat is most tasty. It is produced by mixing mince meat with a lean broth obtained from the animals bones, which is then placed in cows intestines garlic, salt and spices. It is then eaten boiled and browned with butter and is excellent with polenta.

Still from the Val Camonica, Strinù is an excellent cured meat, which is traditionally sliced and cooked on embers or on the hotplate. It is also excellent smoked, with potatoes and vegetables or, even better, boiled. All are worthy of impasto, a mixture of oil, wine, peppers, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Strong flavours for strong emotions, such as pigeon stuffed alla bresciana, once the typical dishes of the Lombardy bourgeoisie. The slightly bitter stuffing is due to the presence of the almond. The result is a complex and complicated dish to be accompanied by special wines such as the Valcalepio rosso.

Fountain

by croisbeauty

The ground floor of the Torre della Pallata is decorated with an beautiful fountain, which is meeting point for the locals. The fountain is made of the white marble from Botticino. The marble of many Brescian monuments comes from Botticino, starting from the Roman era when it was extracted using wooden wedges, which after being water soaked, expanded and split the stone.
The fountain represents allegoric scene of Brescia and its rivers Mella and Garza.

"brescia"

brescia is one of those towns that is under the average visitor to italy's "radar". if you are traveling by car or train through lombardy it is well worth a visit. near the piazza del foro is the roman ruins of the tempio capitolino. just down the street is the museo della citta or santa giulia. this museum is very interesting. the upper part of the museum is the medieval church of santa giulia. this church was built over the ruins of the original roman town. the roman mosaic floors under the church are really worth seeing. also the museum has an interesting collection of roman coins, tools and weapons. another interesting museum in brescia is the pinacoteca civica tosio martinengo featuring renaissance art. an interesting square is the piazza vittoriale. it is surrounded by 1930's mussolini era buildings.
