pieve di Tremosine

Points of interest

On the top of a cliff excavated by the glacier with a breathtaking view of Lake Garda and a poetic atmosphere Pieve has been awarded “One of the most beautiful hamlet in Italy”. Discover the so-called “terraces of the thrill”, its alleys full of history and its gastronomy!


Pieve stands at 423 meters while Lake Garda at 65 meters above sea level. 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. At dusk, when the plain beyond turns fire red, the cluster of houses around the Castèl and the church welcomes you to its narrow and protective lanes.

Patronal feast: 24 June
