The Park Visitors Centre (Il Centro Visitatori del Parco Alto Garda Bresciano) is an important element to help you to get to know the Garda area well, because to admire it in all its splendour you must explore its inland countryside, visit its villages and walk immersed in its alpine scenery.
This is why the Visitors Centre is located in Tignale; from Tignale you can see almost all of Lake Garda and it is very special because it unites the Mediterranean landscape of the lakeside area with that of the Alpine scenery inland. In Tignale those keen on trekking, horse riding and mountain-biking can enjoy magnificent excursions. To visit the area means also to come into contact with the various traditional activities such as fishing, the cultivation of lemons and olives, and the products of local craftsmen. The Visitors Centre tells the story of this delightful area: its territory, culture and its people.
The main part of the Centre is represented by a journey which unwinds through images and sounds, evoking people and the reconstruction of the environment, nature collections, collections of old tools, short documentaries and interactive points. It is a centre of information not only for lovers of the Garda area but also an educative centre for schools and environmental tourism. The Visitors Centre of the regional park ( Parco Alto Garda Bresciano) has a multi-media library , lecture room, well-equipped teaching laboratory and a multi-media encyclopaedia of Garda which can be ‘navigated ’ interactively. To complete your knowledge of our area you can visit the Olive Mill, the lemon house at ‘Pra de la Fam’, the old mill , and even the distillery of Cavalier Bettanini.
