What we will see

The castle of Sirmione is called Scaligera fortresse because it was built by Mastino, the Ist of the Scala Family. He was a podestà in the city of Verona. It was used only for military purposes and is situated at the entrance of the village surrounded by the waters of the lake. The walls were extended in the Venetian period and they built the harbour like the Venetian arsenal model. You can still admire the drawbridge and its crenellated towers
