    The ruins of the Rocca di Manerba offer a magnificent view over Lake Garda, as well as the Brescian Prealps and the Monte Baldo ridge.

    Rocca di Manerba is the name of the most striking rock on the southwestern Lake Garda. Minerva gave the name to the rock that slopes vertically into the lake, because the goddess had her temple here in Roman times.However, the Romans were not the first to pay homage to this divine spot. Finds show that people took possession of this place as early as 7,000 to 10,000 years ago.Later, the Venetians built a castle on the foundations of the temple, which, after the sovereigns left, was also used by robbers as a fortress due to its strategic location.Today beautiful nature walks lead through the park above the steep cliffs. The view of the islands of San Biagio and Isola del Garda against the majestic mountain backdrop of the northern lake is breathtaking. The archaeological finds of the Rocca have been brought together in a small museum, which gives visitors an overview of both the history and the special natural treasures of the Rocca di Manerba.Immediately in front of the museum (follow the signs to “Parco Archeologico”) there is a parking lot, from which you can easily walk to the castle ruins on the top of the rock.The circular hiking trail through the park below the castle can only be tackled with good shoes and a certain surefootedness, but it is definitely worth it.gardasee.de/manerba-del-garda/naturpark-rocca-di-manerba

    A beautiful view over the south of Lake Garda - on clear days even to the north end to Torbole - can be enjoyed from the Rocca di Manerba, a ruined castle on a striking rock at Montinelle. Montinelle is one of the eight villages that make up the municipality of Manerba amidst the olive groves and vineyards of Valtenesis.
