Welcome to Italy in Photos and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of Limone Sul Garda, a mesmerizing town in in the region of Lombardy: – Limone sul Garda is a picturesque town on the western shore of Lake Garda, the largest and most famous lake in Italy. It is in the province of Brescia, in the Lombardy region, about 50 kilometres north of Milan. It has a population of about 1,200 inhabitants and is known for its scenic beauty and its unique history and culture. It is one of the few places in the world where lemons are grown naturally, thanks to its mild climate and its sheltered position at the foot of the Alps. The name of the town derives from the Latin word limes, meaning boundary, as it was the border between the territories of Brescia and Trento in the Middle Ages. It has been a source of inspiration for many artists and writers, such as Goethe, who visited the town in 1786 and described its lemon gardens in his Italian Journey. Limone sul Garda is also famous for its health benefits, as it is home to a rare genetic mutation that protects its inhabitants from cardiovascular diseases. The mutation, called ApoA-1 Milano, was discovered in 1979 by researchers who noticed that the people of Limone had unusually high levels of good cholesterol and low levels of bad cholesterol. The mutation is inherited from a couple who lived in the town in the 17th century and has been passed down to about 40% of the current population. Limone sul Garda offers a variety of attractions and activities for visitors, such as the Limonaia del Castèl, a historical lemon house that dates back to the 11th century and hosts a museum of citrus cultivation; the cycle-pedestrian path overhanging the lake, which runs for three kilometres from the centre of the town to the border with Trentino and offers stunning views of the lake and the mountains; the church of the Saints Quirico and Giulitta, built in the 16th century and featuring a large fresco by the painter G. Quaglio; and the beaches and coves where you can swim, sunbathe, or relax by the lake. Limone sul Garda is also close to other famous destinations on Lake Garda, such as Riva del Garda, Malcesine, and Gardone Riviera, which can be reached by ferry or by car.
