Located in the north east part of Lake Garda, what sets Nago-Torbole apart is its extraordinary geophysical formation, a natural structure which, within a small space, sees the lake ambience alternate with a series of rocky walls reaching up to 2000 metres, between which protrudes Monte Baldo.
This formation developed due to glaciers, of which there still remain vestiges in the form of glacial potholes, above all at Nago, the largest of which are known as the Marmitte dei Giganti, genuine glacial sculptures.
Nago-Torbole is a picturesque district, a landscape which was originally a small hamlet where the main activity was fishing and agricultural, which has maintained the allure of long ago, and combined it with the demands of growing tourism; today it has become one of the most-sought destinations.
The unique formation of the area provides for winds that are continuous and constant, making it an excellent place for water sports; it is no accident that the world windsurfing championship is often held here.
Nago-Torbole contains so much history and culture, to be discovered between narrow alleys, imposing antique churches, immersed in natural serenity of a rural village: the Church of Sant’Andrea with its baroque style contours, the Belvedere di Torbole where the Medieval Castle Tower was erected long ago, the ruins of Penede Castle.
Not to be missed, a visit to the residence of Goethe, one of the greatest European writers, who was captivated by the landscape into which Lake Garda is blended, the mountains, the Sarca river plain and the port, centre of ancient maritime life, which inspired him to resume work on one of his greatest works.
History, charm and fascination characterise the district of Nago-Torbole, a spot where the ancient and modern come together to give life to a landscape which seems to exist outside of time.
