Capella dei conti Treccani
Smal but beautiful Chapel of Counts Treccani is situated in the memorial park, right next to the Panoramic Tower of San Martino della Bataglia. The chapel houses Ossario, where the skulls of many fallen soldiers can be seen, and the tombs of Piemontesi officers.
Sirmione and its castle
"Sirmione and a strong believe"
The Romans builded two castles, two harbours, a settlement and the gigantic villa that rises on rocks and powerfully towers on the lake. On the fundations of the old eastern harbour, the Scaligers later built their famous fortress.
"Sirmione and its castle"
Encircled by the lake, the fortress, which dates from the 13th Century, stands imposingly the entrance to the town.
The Scaligery family had a great influence on Verona and surroundings.
On buildings and monuments :
- Like this fortress in Sirmione
- Like the bridge in Verona itself - named after them.
- Like the surrounding walls (10 km in lenght) protecting Verona
I'm shure there must be many more.
"One of the entrances to the lake"
A charming, graceful yet strong and imposing bultwark, one of the most beautiful buildings in this area of Italy.
But another tip, please take a boat and strand at the private island
"Isola del Garda" - you will see more of the architectural strenght in Italy
