A trail full of history

The Ponale Trail is not just panoramic route over the blue Lake Garda. This road is a jewel of history. They began to build it in 1847 and was immediately clear it was a masterpiece of engineering. Along the slope, embrasures, Austro-Hungarian tunnels and defensive walls they used first to prevent the descent of Garibaldian troops towards Valle di Ledro, then to defend the Austro-Hungarian border with Italy, before the outbreak of the World War I.
