    "The Sanctuary of Montecastello is located on a rocky outcrop not far below the summit of Monte Cas. The sacred place enjoys an incomparable view of Lake Garda at its feet.
    The pilgrimage church is open from April to the end of October, from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm; the same goes for the small café, where you can eat ice cream, drink a cappuccino on the beautiful panoramic terrace or buy a souvenir. "

    From the church you can climb up to the summit cross of Monte Cas. There are several places along the way from where you have a wonderful block on Montecastello. If you continue walking from the cross and do not return on the same path, you will pass several bunker systems and get a beautiful view of Limone and with good visibility you can even look as far as Riva del Garda!

    In good weather, a nice hike that starts with a gentle climb. In the second part you have a super close view of the lake and the Montecastello.

    World War I tunnel that served as a cannon position.
    Can be included in the mountain climb as a short, promising tour.

    Very nice historic trail from the parking lot below Madonna di Montecastillo via the Way of the Cross and past the church to Monte Cas.
    Lasts a good hour, with great views.

    Constantly encounters the ascent to Monte Cas former cannon positions from the 1st World War. The information boards are unfortunately only in Italian or English labeled.
