Place of Interest
Salò Cathedral


Pretty little town on the western shore of Lake Garda

Salò is a really pretty town on the west bank that invites visitors to relax and stroll. Its beautiful old town with old houses and the 4-kilometre-long promenade exudes charm and cosiness. No wonder that many visitors stroll and walk through the city, especially at the weekend. Nevertheless, Salò is not crowded and a must for a short stopover.

Historically, the city experienced a turbulent period. Back in Venetian times it was of strategic importance, and during the Second World War it was made the capital of the Socialist Republic of Italy. Under the supervision of the German Waffen-SS, Benito Mussolini ruled Italy from Salò for two years.

Attractions in Salò

The Cathedral of Santa Maria Annunziata is the largest and most important sacred building around the lake. Unfortunately the facade of the cathedral was never completed, so that it seems completely inconspicuous from the outside. In the three-nave interior, however, there are many beautiful sculptures and paintings to admire – a highlight is the wood crucifix by Hans von Ulm from 1499. Along the lake promenade there are some magnificent palaces such as the Palazzo della Magnifica Patria or the rebuilt City Hall from the 14th century. In the town hall is a small Museo Civico which houses several exhibits from Roman times.
