Tremosine sul Garda and its territory

A unique varied and fascinating landscape characterized by the blue of the waters and the green of the mountains.
The unique feature of this territory mark it as an ideal destination for several outdoor experiences in contact with nature.


The place name is believed to derive from an ancient personal name, Tremusina, perhaps of Etruscan origin. Formally, Tremosine could also derive geo-morphologically from the Italian word “tramoggia”, hopper. The name appears first in 1185 as «de Tremosino», in 1380 as «de Tre-mosigno»
Tremosine coat of arms appears with the title of «Comune» (Municipality) on 12 May 1268. The most ancient known sample of the original coat of arms is found on the side-door of the church of San Giovanni Battista, in Pieve, and shows three curly-haired human heads portrayed in profile, marked with the letters «C» and «T», the initials for Comunitas Tremoseni. The current coat of arms portrays an azure shield with three mountains, the central one bearing a Latin cross, rising from an argent plain with two azure wave bands and bearing above everything the silver motto “ET TU VIATOR VALE”.

Tremosine sul Garda and its territory

Once upon a time there was, and there still is, an enchanted place where the Alps dive into the deep blue waters of Lake Garda and where the alpine landscape merges with the Mediterranean scenario. A place where the charm of pristine nature feeds the spirit and where life flows peacefully and simply, according to the flow of the seasons. A place where each vacation becomes a magical and unforgettable experience.


Tremosine, with Pieve, its main hamlet, poised on the edge of the rock hanging out over Lake Garda, is one of the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” (Italy’s most beautiful hamlet), the exclusive “club” of small towns that stand out from the rest for their beautiful scenery, their harmonious architecture, their environmental charm, their historical, artistic and cultural assets and their interesting religious, popular and gastronomic traditions.
This is the largest hamlet and is located on the top of a cliff carved by the glacier.
Pieve stands at the top of a cliff excavated by the glacier. Lake Garda is located at 65 metres above sea level, while Pieve is at 423 m. a.s.l.. For centuries they have been connected by one of the world’s most beautiful pathways, called the “Sentiero del porto” that is still capable of providing travelers with an absolutely breathtaking view as they are caressed by the lake breeze. The ancient paving and the blackened stones of the side walls tell the tale of men and their barters, of the literally back-breaking transport of goods. Once at the top, the terrace that was reached by the cableway only in the late 19th century reconciles one with the surrounding haven. Up and down, down and up, first to reach the port almost hidden at the feet of the little valley, and then on to the cotton factory in Campione, that provided a job for hundreds of workers. Up and down also to reach the mountain areas, to cut grass for the animals, to gather wood for the fireplace and for the “calchéra” and the “poiàt”. Not to mention for hunting, for reaching the stalls, the inn, etc. Pieve still experiences this dimension set between lake and sky, while Mount Baldo, the majestic mountain standing on the opposite shore (province of Verona), keeps faithful and silent watch.
In order to fully appreciate the scenic beauty of Tremosine, visitors must first cross the Brasa gorge, where the rock has been excavated and tormented by the stream for centuries. Once in Lis, the view opens up. Tremosine is a town consisting of eighteen small hamlets, of which only one, Campione, is directly on the lake, while the others – Ariàs, Bassanega, Cadignano, Cas-tone, Mezzema, Musio, Pregasio, Priezzo, Secastello, Sermerio, Sompriezzo, Ustecchio, Vesio, Villa, Voiandes, Voltino and Pieve (the chief town) – are scattered throughout the beautiful plateau. The Municipality of Tremosine is one of the largest in the province of Brescia, with its approx. 72 km² of ex-tension. Set in the Alto Garda Bresciano Park, the landscape is quite varied, and the hamlets stand between small valleys, on hummocks and low hills, in plains covered in olive groves, meadows and fir woods. Tremosine can be reached also from Limone and Tignale, along the “Tignalga” road. There are many mule tracks that, gently ascending the slopes of the mountains, reach the high altitude areas in the locations that, up until 1918, marked the border with the Austro-Hungarian empire. Especially spectacular are the ones that from San Michele and Bondo lead to Tremalzo, towards Valle di Ledro. This creates a veritable haven for excursionists and for mountain-bikers, of all levels, even the most demanding. The people of the plateau have a long-standing tradition as agricultural farmers and stock breeders, and the mountain witnessed the activity of a large number of “malghe” (mountain farms): Nota, Fobia, Molvìna, Ciàpa, Prato Lavino, Pra Pià, Ca da l’Era, Spiàs, Lorìna, Pùria, Pozza ådel Lupo, that produced excellent but-ter and cheeses. Once there was also a large number of smithies that pro-duced tools and nails. Tourism became a primary industry in the Seventies, especially in the Bassanega and Voltino hamlets.
