ELECTED BORGHETTO BETWEEN THE BEAUTIFULEST BORGHETS OF ITALY

MINCIO

Of the beautiful landscapes that the Mincio bathes, Borghetto is among the most beautiful. You can reach the magical medieval village from Valeggio in a few minutes by road, among the gardens, under the hills that separate the village from the valley below the Mincio. The entrance to the village is absolutely picturesque: a complex of small houses leaning against medieval walls, towers, mills, bridges and the background of the river current. Borghetto represents a splendid example of human settlement immersed in a natural environment still almost intact today and an incredible concentration of history.

STORY

Although the first documented human settlement dates back to the Bronze Age, the village, used over the years as a ford of the river Mincio, still maintains the appearance of a medieval village, represented in particular by the fortresses of the Ponte Visconteo: an extraordinary fortification built in 1393 by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, Duke of Milan, in order to defend its domains.
