INTRODUCTION


 

  This page is intended to help you walk through the dense network of trails winding through Tignale. It was inspired by the growing curiosity of tourists about this area of Lake Garda, its history and its traditions. To reach Tignale, you must leave behind the western side of the Lake. In the opposite direction, you can discover the six hamlets of Tignale by walking through the old paths connecting them. Through this page, you can discover the historical heritage of the territory, and gain new insight into it. The different cultural associations operating in the area share the objective to spread knowledge about local traditions. They pursue their aim through the Lemon Groves Ecomuseum of Lake Garda, which was founded to foster research into the rich local cultural heritage and its preservation.
