The Tower of San Martino della Battaglia in Desenzano del Garda
The small town of San Martino della Battaglia (BS) is located a few kilometers from Desenzano del Garda and is one of the most visited places on Lake Garda in the province of Brescia.
Regardless of where you arrive, it is impossible not to notice the Tower towering among the hills of Garda.
The Tower of San Martino, today, is one of the most important symbols of the Italian Risorgimento.
In front of the imposing monument, there is a large car park that allows you to park your vehicle and then visit the Tower, and if it is already occupied, you can stop in the first car parks that meet along the road that leads to the Tower.
Once the car is parked, you can choose whether to immediately visit the Tower or the Ossuary. The visit to the Ossuary of San Martino della Battaglia is free, while to visit the tower and climb to the top, you pay an entrance ticket which also includes the entrance to the adjacent museum.
The Tower of San Martino della Battaglia stands 64 meters high and from its top you can see a magnificent 360 ° panorama. The path taken to climb is gentle and can be followed by walking.
There are no steps and for this reason it is recommended to everyone, even the youngest, who can learn something about the history of the Italian Risorgimento through the many frescoes that decorate the internal walls of the Tower, narrating its history and fundamental stages.
