Pieve di Tremosine

Park and head straight to the bell tower, it is visible from everywhere nearby. If you are a history person and take an interest in art and architecture, be sure to visit the church of Saint John the Baptist. All of its work date back to 17-18th centuries, while the wooden carvings were created by Giacomo Lucchini between 1700 and 1729.

When leaving the church, do not rush to the parapet, which offers stunning views of the lake. Examine the building from the outside. You will notice that the bell tower is very different in construction technology from the rest of the church. The reason is simple: this bell tower was inherited by this church from the old one, built a very long time ago, about 1000 AD. And the main part of the walls that we can see today was erected at the end of the 16th century. As you can see, even four hundred years ago, the inhabitants of the town could complain: “Well, in the good old times they used to build much better and more thoroughly!”.

From the church, the road leads down to a small square and the town’s main attraction, a terrace offering perhaps the best view over Lake Garda and the Monte Baldo mountain.
