Sirmione Castle or Scaligero Castle is a beautiful structure that once protected the town of Sirmione. Its intricate architecture, as well as the view from its towers, draw numerous visitors each year. It is one of two most well-known tourist attractions of Sirmione and definitely worth visiting.
Most probably the castle Scaligero in Sirmione was constructed on the remains of an older fortification from the period of the Roman Empire. The construction was commissioned by Leonardo della Scala also known as Mastino I in the 13th century. Leonardo was a member of della Scala family which ruled over Verona and surrounding area from 1262 to 1387. In 1405, the fortress passes into the hands of the Venetian Republic, which added several additional features to the fortress.
The beautiful Sirmione Castle is completely surrounded by the waters of the Lake Garda. Once it guarded the entrance to the town Sirmione and held a fleet in charge of controlling the lake. It is considered one of the best preserved castles in Italy, whose charm and beauty contribute to the popularity of the town itself among the modern tourists.
