FESTA DI MEZZA QUARESIMA

Traditionally this event takes place two weeks before the Palm Sunday. In case of bad weather it will be moved on the next Sunday, however never on Palm Sunday.

The Festival begins in the early afternoon

For this we heartily suggest a visit in the "Tesöl", where you can get a good idea of his life, his work and you can simply relax in the special and calm atmosphere you find in this place. To make his dream come true, which is to "save Africa through Africa", he did not hesitate in involving the whole church because he was convinced that his dream co

THE MUSEUM OF TOURISM

Following construction of the Gardesana road (1929 - 1931), which permetted a connection between Limone, Gargnano and Riva, Limone became one of the most frequented tourist centres of Lake Garda in the second half of the twentieth century.

Limone, following the footsteps of history and traditions

The first stop following the historical and traditional footsteps is the "Museum of Tourism" founded in the former City Hall, on the lakeshore. This is an exhibition space dedicated to social-economic evolution in Limone throughout the twentieth century.
