The Castle

The Castle is the structure that characterizes view of the town of Desenzano, both from the hinterland and from the lake. The Castle, which originated in the early Middle Ages and probably rises on the foundations of a Roman castrum, was extended in the 15th century to the south, continuing to serve mainly as a refuge for the population. Remaining from the ancient castle, there are still some sections of ancient walls and from its terrace you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Lake Garda.

Il Duomo (The Cathedral)

Built between 1586 and 1611 by architect Todeschini and dedicated to Saint Mary Magdalene, the Cathedral of Desenzano preserves canvases by Andrea Celesti, Gian Battista Tiepolo, Zenon Veronese, Palma il Giovane, Andrea Bertanza and Pietro Calcinardi. The main altar, richly inlaid with marble, is attributed to the school of Santo Calegari. Guided Tours and Classical Music Concerts throughout the year.

La Villa Romana (The Roman Villa)

Discovered in 1921, the remains of Villa Romana in Desenzano are considered to be the most important testimony in the northern Italy of the great late-ancient villas. The villa, which extends for about one hectare, dates back to the first century AD, with works completed at the beginning of the 4th century. In addition to Antiquarium, where sculptures, jewellery, utensils, oil lamps and brooches are kept, interesting are also the octagonal vestibule, the peristyle, the atrium, the sumptuous tri-chorus hall and the viridarium, completed by a nymphaeum. Wonderful are the mosaic floors, where hunting scenes, fishing and rural life are represented.
