Agency for the 'Garda' lake

Punta San Vigilio

Punta San Vigilio is a small peninsula dominated by cypress trees in the municipal area of Garda and property of the Counts Guarienti of Brenzone, where art, history and nature come together to make the promontory a unique expression of great beauty and romanticism.
Among the cobbled streets are to be found the grand Renaissance villa, a little churc, an ancient lemon grove, a amall harbour on which opens the historic eponymous inn and the delightful Baia delle Sirene, or 'Bay of Mermaids', where you can enjoy the ultimate sunny in tranquillity by lying under the olive trees. It is the ideal place to capture snapshots of sunrises, sunsets and other spectacular shows of light among the breathtaking views. Here dwelt many illustrious personalities, such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Winston Churchill,s who, retired from public life after the war, spent long periods of rest painting by the lake. Behind the cliff rises Mount Luppia, famous for its prehistoric rock carvings; an open-air museum, which boasts more than three thousand catalogued images representing men, weapons, animals and special symbols.
