We went out for a walk after a storm and found ourselves at this Castle. The views were amazing and worth the walk!

Fabulous views over the lake and Torbole. Nice walk up not to strenuous. Worth it for the view. We walked there on an organised trek so our great guide told us loads of interesting facts about the area.

A tough climb from Torbole but worth the great view. The climb from Nago, then down to Torbole is somewhat easier. Historical castle is a ruin but there are markers with historical information along the way.

The walk up to the castle was pleasant, picnic areas on the way, but there was little left of the castle building. It looks more impressive from the Roman road, standing on the edge of a cliff.

Not too tough a climb and the views were amazing at the top. Not much of the actual castle left but enough to get an idea of what it would have been like.
