Gargnano is a small community, however, it’s composed of 13 villages, two tiny villages - Villa and Bogliaco – are located on the shores of Lake Garda. The other villages cling to the hillside above Gargnano. The former fishing village of Gargnano has a pretty, winding old town center and a tranquil harbor with quite a short promenade. Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate, a typical Mediterranean vegetation with palm trees, lemon trees and cedars has developed.
From 1943-1945 Gargnano moved into the public view of the world, when the Germans inserted here the puppet government under Benito Mussolini. From the "Chancellery" at Palazzo Feltrinelli Mussolini ruled the Repubblica Sociale Italiana.
Today Gargnano is known primarily as a venue for the international sailing regatta "Centomiglia".


Attractions in Gargnano
• The parish church of San Martino, which was built in 1837 in the style of the Italian historicism.
