Castelnuovo del Garda is a city located in an area known from ancient times. This city at Lake Garda was alternately called “Beneventum”, “Quadrivium”, whereas its current name comes from the fortification built during the 12th century, that is “Castrum novum”.

The tortuous streets of the city delineate a plethora of historical monuments built as early as the 14th century. Of these, the oldest refer to the Viscontea Tower and Castle, both built during the 1300s. Tourists should also strive not miss out Villa Cossali Sella, Villa Arvedi D'Emilei and Villa Negri, built between the 15th and the 17th century.

The churches of Madonna degli Angeli (the 15th century), Santa Maria (the 15th century) or the Church of Saints Filippo and Giacomo (the 18th century) are frequented both by believers and by tourists interested in observing the architectural style of these historical monuments.

A further highlight of Castelnuovo del Garda is represented by the Heroes Monument, built in honor of those who died during World War One. The monument is located in the very Central Square, next to a fountain built by Luigi Trezza.
