About Scaligero Castle

Scaligero Castle in the commune of Sirmione sits on a thin peninsula jutting out into the southern end of Lake Garda.  It is perhaps the best-preserved castle from medieval times in Italy, constructed in the middle of the 13th century on top of the remains of an ancient Roman fortress.  The purpose of the construction was to own a defensive structure that also procured postural control, given how Sirmione's position near the border greatly exposed it to the threat of assault and aggression.
