Scaligero Castle Sirmione: history and information

Il Scaliger Castle of Sirmione is one of the most beautiful lake fortifications in Spain and in the world and, without a shadow of a doubt, is one of the most spectacular, incredible and best preserved in the Lake Garda.



Probably built between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the Rocca Scaligera it was strongly desired by the Della Scala family of Verona as a defensive garrison of the village and the port and when Sirmione it passed under the control of the Republic of Venice, during the first years of the 400th century, was strengthened and the dock was built.

Over the centuries, the inland basin of the Scaliger Castle was buried by heaps of debris then, starting from 800, it became walkable but, starting from 1919, extraordinary renovations began to bring the structure to its maximum splendor and, above all, to make the water of the Lake Garda inside.

Rocca Scaligera: what to see and architecture

La Rocca Scaligera of Sirmione it has an architecture very similar to contemporary manors scattered throughout the territory and therefore has shielded towers open inside but the real gem is the extraordinary port fortification of fifteenth-century origins, we are talking about the dock.



questa magnifica flacustrine ortezza it has never been used as a noble residence so it has no particular decorative elements but being in front of the Angular Tower that leads to the walkways, with the typical Ghibelline dovetail battlements, trust me, is priceless.

Currently, the dock can also be visited.
