    The pilgrimage church from the 17th century towers in a breathtaking position about 700 meters above Lake Garda.

    The view into the abyss above the Monte Castello is spectacular. Presumed dizziness. :-)

    The view is worth the steep climb! Also interesting are the battle positions left over from the war.

    The climb is definitely worth it. But you can also drive up to the chapel with a small car - free adrenalin.

    Above Prabione the ascent to Monte Cas is heavier than from the road. But more spectacular

    The steep ascent is rewarded with a cheap coffee on the sun terrace and gigantic views.

    The Madonna di Montecastello, Eremio die Montecas, is an Italian pilgrimage church in the local area of the municipality of Tignale on the western side of Lake Garda in the province of Brescia, Lombardy region. A place for inner contemplation.
    The hike from the parking lot directly on the road, over the Way of the Cross and past the Madonna di Montecastillo chapel, through shady forest, past former positions of the First World War to the summit cross of Monte Castillo is worthwhile.
    The last part is secured with ropes and surefootedness is required.
    The path offers a magnificent view of the chapel and Lake Garda.
