The most important place to visit in Tignale is the Sanctuary of Montecastello. This is situated a little below the peak of Monte Cas on a spur of rock sheer above the lake. There are wonderful views from the Sanctuary because of its unique location you can see from the high peaks of Monte Baldo on the other side of the lake, to the Sirmione peninsula in the south, and all the spectacular scenery between. The Sanctuary is richly decoreted and has attractive frescoes attributed to the school of Giotto.



The Park museum, through a trip involving sights and sounds, recalling people and environments, old tools and natural history collections, videos and interactive points, uses modern and innovative ways of informing visitors about the local area, its traditional activities from fishing to the cultivation of lemons, from agricolture in the mountain areas to the products of local craftsmen.



Guided tour of the oil mill, every Thursday at 5.00 p.m (free). The extra virgin olive oil from Tignale's "Latteria Turnaria" Co-operative is an organic product of the highest quality.



Lemon trees between rows of high pillars surrounded by stone walls that are covered in winter to become enormous greenhouses, enabling the cultivation of citrus fruits, particularly lemons, even in this northerly altitude. Guided tour with tasting session every Tuesday at 5.00 p.m. from May until September.



Tignale is made up of six small villages, each built closely around a church and enriched by interesting medieval buildings.


This is the first village you pass driving up from the lakeside. It's sunny position offers visitors an enchanting historical centre, beautiful panoramic viewpoints and the Church of San Marco. There are several footpaths where you can walk or go mountain biking from here. We recommend the panoramic and easy walk called "Bassa Via del Garda" (the lower Garda way) that links Piovere to the village of Muslone, hamlet of Gargnano


Coming up from the lake you drive through Oldesio on the way to the main village Gardola. Surrounded by olive trees, this pleasant village with its lanes, the little Church of San Rocco and the old washing-through, is witness to the way of life of past centuries. From Oldesio there is a beautiful footpath linking the plateau of Tignale to the lakeside, arriving at the harbour of Tignale (quite a difficult walk). You can reach easily the centre of Gardola, passing the village, you will reach the church S.Maria Assunta in about half an hour walk.


The main village of Tignale, with its town hall and services (chemists, doctor's surgery, dentist's surgery, bank and shops).
To visit: Oilpress di Tignale, Church S.Maria Assunta and the  Church S.Pietro. Various possibilities to make excursions, one of them is to walk to the Santuary of Montecastello (nr.266).


Easy to reach from Gardola (a pleasant walk, recommended particularly for older people and children). Near the little Church of S.Bernardo, you can see an old stone press once used for grinding olives.
From Aer, you can walk to Piovere along the "sentiero del sole" (sunny footpath). On the way you pass an attractive waterfall. Nr.265 2nd part.


The Park Museum is in Prabione, along with the public open-air swimming pool, the little Church of S.Zenone and the old distillery of the Bettanini family, renowned for the production of the famous grappa "Rugiada delle Alpi" (Alpine dew) named by the Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio.
From Prabione you can walk down to Campione (village in the comune of Tremosine situated on the lake) by footpath nr. 266.
