The Forts of Monte Brione

ON THE TRACES OF THE BIG WAR
The Forts of Monte Brione: history, memories, natur and beauty

Brione is a promontory overlooking the waters of Lake Garda at its northernmost point, between Torbole and Riva.

This natural panoramic platform, known for the breath-taking views it commands, was formerly an important venue for the Austro-Hungarian military, which constructed a series of fortifications here, today a significant cultural site.

The tour of these forts begins at Porto San Nicolò, with the first Austrian defensive structure, dating back to the First World War; this can be visited from the outside only. It was built in the 19th century and extended and reinforced during the Great War. The Forte San Nicolò was linked to the Forte Garda, an extensive structure with four armoured domes. From here it is uphill to the Batteria di Mezzo, a large fort which remains largely intact, an Austro-Hungarian outpost built at the start of the 20th century; from its dome one can enjoy exceptional 360° views of the surrounding area.

The Forts of Monte Brione are among the most important tourist destinations on the Garda shores for walkers and cyclists, who find in this place nature, history and culture and a remarkably evocative landscape.
