    The Town Hall

    The Town Hall

    Favorite thing: The building of the Town Hall, with its cute rooftop clock, dominates the central city square. It is pretty much interesting because of numerous wall tablets on its front facade. This tablets content the most important facts in the history of the town and the memorial to those locals who were killed in the battle for the independence.

    Peschiera

    Favorite thing: The history of the townlet goes back into the Roman times when area around Lago, where the river of Mincio inflow into the lake, was colonized by the Romans. The settlement, called Arilica, was fortified by the walls in order to protect valuable fishing and transporting importance of the place.
    In the medieval times the name of the place was changed into Pischaria.
    During Austrian rule, Peschiera became one of the four corners of the "quadrilateral", the other three were Verona, Mantova and Legnago.

    Peschiera fortress

    Favorite thing: We strowled out the fortress gate to have a look at the moat. There were huge fish in it.
    The village just ended at the other side of the moat, just some houses outside the gate and the mountains right behind it.

    Peschiera sign

    Favorite thing: Near the city centre is an old Roman site and if you have some imagination you can see what building once stood here.
    It is in between houses near a large parking lot and there are always some folks trying to get the best view.

    Favorite thing: Near the lake is this lovely building. It probably was or is part of the police academy, which was not far from it.
    Ouf course I had to photograph only part of it ... sigh .. ;-)
