The castèl lemon grove


Facing the sun so as to catch its rays the white pillars and walls of the limonaie – lemon groves – still stand proud along the lake shore. They are unique and an example of an illustrious past that on lake Garda they can only be found between Limone and Gargnano. In 1995 the local Council bought the Limonaia del Castèl with the view to promote this heritage. It was restored and put back to use by planting over 100 citrus plants, restructuring the ledges and irrigation system, and rebuilding the tool shed. For more information please refer to the “MUSEUM INFO” guide.
