From the bastion you get a beautiful view of the old town of Rivas and Lake Garda. The very short ascent of just under a mile is definitely rewarded and is a must for every Riva visitor. Those who are more confident follow the path 2 km further to the St. Barbara Chapel, which is 450 meters higher.

The bastion in Riva del Garda - Il Bastione
One of the most distinctive landmarks of Riva del Garda is the bastion in Riva del Garda. Made of gray natural stone, this magnificent building is one of the symbols of the city, which embodies strength and power. The fortress towers majestically at the foot of Monte Rocchetta to protect the city - in the past and no longer today, of course - from intruders.
Even if the Il Bastione has long since lost its function as a defensive structure, the building still inspires with its extraordinary charisma. Despite the attempts at destruction, the bastion in Riva del Garda is still an eye-catcher that is second to none.gardasee.at/ausflugstipps/kultur/il-bastione-in-riva-del-garda.html
