Il Castello Scaligero di Sirmione sorge sul punto piu’ stretto della penisola omonima, importante centro turistico e termale che si affaccia sul Lago di Garda, tra i golfi di Peschiera e Desenzano.

La cittadina è famosa per aver dato i natali al poeta Catullo. Il castello fu costruito nel XIII secolo dalla famiglia piu’ importante dell’epoca, gli Scaligeri e doveva essere base per la difesa e controllo del Lago. Il Castello Scaligero colpisce per la sua torre pentagonale di 31 mt. che gli danno un aspetto fiabesco e per il complicato sistema di ponti levatoi e di saracinesche che sono rimaste completamente integri.

Altra caratteristica del Castello, la darsena, che è usata tutt’oggi come attivo porticciolo. Il tramonto è il momento ideale per arrivare nella romantica Sirmione e visitare il suo caratteristico centro storico. All'estremità della penisola di Sirmione, in una splendida posizione panoramica, si trovano i resti della villa romana nota da secoli con il nome di "Grotte di Catullo", l'esempio più grandioso di edificio privato di carattere signorile di tutta l'Italia settentrionale.

Sirmione, a pearl on Garda lake
mind to the muggles!

A picture of the GPS+cache+geocacher is welcome

The Scaligero Caste of Sirmione rises on the narrowest point of the homonym peninsula, important tourist and thermal centre which appears on Garda Lake, between Peschiera and Desenzano gulfs. The village is famous as birthplace of the poet Catullo. The Castle was built in XIII century by the most important family of that period, the Scaligeri and had to be the basis for defence and control of the Lake. The Scaligero Castle impresses for its pentagonal tower 31 meters high, that give it a fabulous look and for the complicated system of drawbridges and portcullis which have been completely whole. Another characteristic of the Castle, the dock, that is usually used as active port. The sunset is the perfect moment to arrive to the romantic Sirmione and to visit its lovely historic centre. At the end of the peninsula, in an amazing position, there are the ruins of the Romanesque villa, known since centuries as “Grotte di Catullo” (Catullo’s caves), the greatest example of private-noble building in northern Italy.
