More about Hotel Gardesana

Palazzo dei Capitani

by suvanki

This is the ancient residence of the Governor "The Captain of the Lake" and the seat of the Venetian "Gardesana del ' Acqua" who were an autonomous authority for territorial control.

I'd wandered into the entrance hall and the gardens without realising the name of the place. I later realised that this was 'The Captains Palace'

I was quite impressed with the 15th century frescoes that decorate the ceiling of the tunnell like entrance hall, which I think was the Salle del Sadle, or Reunions Hall.

Dominating the fresco is the symbol of Venice - The winged lion of St Mark, standing (en passant) with its paw on an open book showing the inscription 'Pax tibi, Marce, Evangelista meus', which are the words spoken by the angel to greet Mark in his Venetian dream.

The Palace which had originally developed on the site of a Roman palace was reconstructed in the Venetian style in the 15th Century.

Its garden is a pleasant place to view the lake, its waters lap the gardens edge.

The Captains Palace is another popular place for weddings - an alternative to Castello Scaligero. The civil ceremony takes place in a room with Renaissance decoration and antique furniture, with views over the lake.

Free entrance to the Reunions Hall, Garden and library

Lago di Garda - Torri del Benaco

by croisbeauty

Torri del Benaco, known in the Roman times under the name Castrum Turrium, was the chief town of the Gardesana after the 13th century. There is a pretty port, right in the heart of the townlet, with a duck house.
The castle of the Scaligeri dates from 1383, and is open daily. It contains a small museumthat illustrates the history of the fishing on the lake.
