Punta San Vigilio

The enchanting San Vigilio peninsula

Punta San Vigilio is a headland that from the slopes of Monte Baldo plummets into the waters of the lake forming a charming peninsula. From the centre of the town, heading towards Torri del Benaco, you can walk for about a kilometre and a half along the shores of the lake, between the famed Villa Becelli-Albertini and Villa Carlotti-Canossa, surrounded by magnificent gardens.

The route ends with a picturesque harbour, enclosed within the walls of the surrounding buildings. On the last rock overlooking the lake, you can admire the old church of San Vigilio, whose niche shelters the statue of San Giovanni Napomiceno, protector of sailors.

As you proceed, you arrive at the entrance to the splendid Villa Brenzoni-Guarienti, built in the first half of the 16th century in the midst of a garden full of ornamental plants, tombstones and sculptures in typical Renaissance style. Going up the long avenue of cypress trees that connects the villa to the state road, we recommend that in the end, you walk down to admire an evocative spectacle offered by the Baia delle Sirene, a bay with particularly clear waters.
