Borghetto sul Mincio
A small village considered one of the most beautiful in Italy
Borghetto sul Mincio is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. This small village, born in symbiosis with the river Mincio, owes its charm to the harmonious relationship that history and nature have preserved over the centuries, and today it represents an urban “unicum” of great charm.
The oldest part of the town still maintains the appearance of a ‘medieval village’, underlined by the presence of the bell tower, the watermill wheels and the fortresses of the Visconti Bridge, the extraordinary fortified dam built at the behest of Gian Galeazzo Visconti, Duke of Milan in 1393. Along the banks of the river Mincio, which flows through the centre of the village, you can spend pleasant days immersed in the peace and quiet of its little streets. Would you like a proof? Visit the small Church of St. Mark the Evangelist (18th century), built on the remains of an earlier Romanesque parish church from the 11th century, and admire the mysterious statue of St. John of Nepomuk, who protects those who fall into the waters of the river from drowning.
