This fortified tower from the 15th century can be easily reached via a plastered path and is one of the core symbols of Riva del Garda.
From the Via Monte Oro you walk west in the direction of Limone and then you surmount a short ascent to the fort (15-20 minutes). From this point you can choose to walk further via the path 404 to reach the church of S. Barbara in 1 hour (approx. 600 m) and in 1 more hour you can reach the “Cima Sat” (approx. 1500 m).
From the tower itself you can admire the beautiful view of the Garda Lake and the surrounding mountains. In the spring and the summer seasons you can also rest in the restaurant located at this point.
