Pieve di Tremosine – Terrace of the thrill and road of the gorge


Pieve di Tremosine – Terrace of the thrill and road of the gorge

 

A tour to discover the Garda area where past, nature and culinary tradition meet

The town is located in a suggestive position, on the top of a cliff carved by an ancient glacier at 423 meters above sea level; to reach it, take the famous Forra road, defined by Winston Churchill as “the eighth wonder of the world”. A road formed by a split of the mountain with sheer walls, arches and bridges and a succession of gorges up to one of the most beautiful villages in Italy: Pieve di Tremosine!

The tour begins by crossing the Piazza Marconi along the narrow streets, until you come to the Scala Tonda where Arturo Cozzaglio, a well-known local figure, Arturo Cozzaglio, sat for his numerous studies, research and for having created the project of the Porto-Pieve-Vesio road.

Walking along the narrow alleys of the village, you can reach the most suggestive points of view of the lake; the best known is the terrace of the thrill. A balcony overlooking the Garda with a drop of almost 400 meters … looking into the cliff makes you shudder! (hence the name)

To visit there is the church of Pieve, an architectural jewel of Romanesque origin, surrounded by a garden with a panoramic view; inside you can admire decorated altars, wooden counters; it seems that this church gave the name to Tremosine.

The tour will continue to the Valle dei Laghi, where typical local products can be purchased from a typical Tremosine cheese, Garda extra virgin olive oil, salami and wines at a dairy.

Lunch is scheduled at the Miralago restaurant in Tremosine, where you can enjoy a spectacular view overlooking Lake Garda and taste the local products; for those who do not want to have lunch they can enjoy an excellent aperitif or a coffee in the bar in front of the restaurant or take a walk.
