Famous for its lemon groves, extra virgin olive oil and the long life of its inhabitants, Limone sul Garda is a delightful village that lies on the shores of the Brescia coast.
You can see it almost immediately in its entirety, lying along the shore of Lake Garda with its houses leaning against the mountain that rise in a crescendo that then returns to reflect in the calm waters of its lake; the characteristic harbor with its moored boats and the boats that slowly make the same route, from one bank to the other.
Entering the historic center of Limone sul Garda one cannot fail to meet the church of San Rocco, a small gem located in the northern part of the town. You arrive from the lakeside of Limone by taking a steep uphill road and following the signs. This church was built as a gift from the citizens for having survived the plague that struck the village during the 16th century. After the World War, the building underwent renovations which brought to light the frescoes of the 1500s, in fact, some remains of the original ones can still be seen from the walls of the facade. The outside of the church is very humble and simple.
From its terrace you are breathless at the view that presents itself in front of you. It certainly offers one of the most characteristic views of Limone sul Garda, it is the right place to take wonderful photos.
Then there is the church of San Benedetto which was built in 1691 on the remains of a previous much older Romanesque church which was at that time a subsidiary of the parish of Tremosine sul Garda. Later it was freed from this bond and rebuilt because it was not sufficient to accommodate all the faithful.
There are three lemon houses that can be visited as real museums:
- the Tesol lemon house;
- the lemon house of Villa Boghi;
- the lemon house of Castél.
They are real greenhouses that made the production of lemons and oranges easy, a production made even more favorable for the climate that distinguishes this area, which is mild even during the winter season. To better appreciate them it is advisable to reach them by boat, by boat, so as to enjoy all the details, which otherwise, from the road, can only be glimpsed.

For bicycle lovers in Limone there is the Garda cycle path, an extraordinary cycle path that connects Limone sul Garda to the border with Trentino, with stretches that protrude directly into the lake.
