The gate linked the town with the outside world. It was largely rebuilt in the mid-19th century to a design by Luigi Antonio Baruffaldi. Above the gate rises the belfry of the nearby parish church (Santa Maria).

Good that it has been preserved
Oct 2019
We were in Riva Del Garda for a few hours being on a Riviera Travel tour to Lake Garda and the Dolomites. Prior to us spending a few hours in Riva Del Garda our guide had told us to look out for the San Michele city gate which was connected to what remained of the city walls from earlier times. While we didn't go out of our way to find it we did indeed come across it as it provdes one way from getting from the old town through to the more modern portion.

We were just strolling through the streets of Riva and just happened to pass through this gate! Nice bit of architecture but other than that, we took a picture and just walked on!

Fun day out

If you are traveling with kids it may be difficult to do but if you get out early with your significant other you can go here and enjoy an early breakfast and espresso while walking along the beautiful castle walls. Really lovely.

Local market in the mornings
Aug 2017 • Family
There is a local market outside the gates during the morning. Here you can get fresh berries and fruits or eggs and veggies straight from the farmers.

Beautiful city wall gate
Jul 2017 • Couples
Gorgeous gate that takes you right into the centre of Riva, which is pedestrianised but cyclist are allowed in. Just one of the many beautiful sights around Riva del Garda.
