CASTELLO DI MANERBA

Castles at Manerba del Garda

Where
Manerba del Garda (BS)

As for the Castle of Manerba, only some fragments are currently visible. In fact, the castle situated within parco della rocca was completely destroyed. Dating back to 1787, in fact, the complete destruction of its walls by order of a Venetian Superintendent employed by the Most Serene Republic of Venice. The place had become, according to reported accounts, an area of refuge for bandits as early as the late sixteenth century and since 1573 they began the actual demolition of the building. It must be assumed in any case that the castle, like almost all those springing up in Valtenesi had defensive purposes rather than residential, and that it must therefore belong to the medieval period. In fact, it was built on top of an even earlier settlement, dating back to the Iron Age, approximately during the tenth century to deal with the barbarian invasions, and was then substantially modified at the turn of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The analysis of the foundations, more generally of the masonry structures and the shape of the latter favour the latter hypothesis. As revealed by recent surveys in fact originally the castle served as a stronghold for the the Lombards committed to defend against Frankish attacks, and then became the scene of clashes between Guelph and Ghibelline factions. In any case access to the castle must have been to the east, and always in the vicinity a stone staircase was placed which is still partly preserved. The building was then fitted with the keep.
