Alto Garda Bresciano Park

With an area of about 38,000 hectares, the park is positioned between lake Garda and mountains

The Alto Garda Bresciano Park is characterised by two different territorial realities of great naturalistic and landscape value: the Garda riviera, with its Mediterranean climate and vegetation, and the mountainous hinterland, with peaks that reach an altitude of two thousand metres.

The coastline is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Brescia area, which includes towns such as Salò, Gardone Riviera, Toscolano Maderno, Gargnano and Limone del Garda. The hilly and mountainous hinterland area is more of a niche tourism destination, less appealing to the mass-market yet focused on the environment and local identity.

The mountain area is ideal for walking and hiking in close contact with nature, thanks to the presence of a dense network of marked trails, shelters and support facilities for visitors (such as the Austro –Hungarian hay barn with the thatched roof found in Cima Rest in Valvestino). The Mediterranean environments near the lakeside and the alpine settings in the hinterland contribute to the area's incredible biodiversity, in terms of both plant and animal life. The park's network of museums includes, in addition to smaller facilities, the following structures: the Ecomuseum of the Pra de la Fam Lemon House in Tignale and the Al Castel Lemon House in Limone sul Garda; the Ethnographic Museum of Valvestino in the town of Magasa and the Museum of Ancient crafts and the water mill in the town of Valvestino.

The main objective of the whole entire of the Upper Garda Park system is to enhance the area and its heritage by creating educational paths and building awareness about the immense value of a territory such as Lake Garda - Valsabbia area.
