Beautiful stronghold on the hill overlooking the village and Lake Garda, entering under the portal once with a drawbridge you meet several houses lined up on a picturesque street.
This castle for several centuries, since 1145 , was disputed from several Lords for his strategic location, today is a nice point to watch Garda Lake an to do four steps into history.

We were pleasantly surprised by this interesting castle, what makes it even more fascinating is the fact that it is still inhabited, some citizens still live in the medieval houses within the castle walls. There is also a nice view over the Lake from its bell tower. Really worth a visit if you are in the area.

This was an interesting area where people are still occupying medieval houses inside the castle walls. Worth a quick visit if in the area.

This is probably one of the most beautiful places in Europe. I had heard of its beauty but only when you are there you can actually feel its real positive energy. This place is amazing, so much history and people are wonderful, kind, joyful. This is one of my 'dream destinations' and I hope to be able to visit at least once every couple of years. The view from the castle is incredible. I definitely recommend going to this great place in Italy if you enjoy nature, adventure, rest and have great admiration for historic sites.

Took about 10 mins to drive here from our hotel ... It'd been bugging me since we arrived as I could see it from our balcony!

It's interesting in that there's a small commune of houses inside the old castle walls, but otherwise there's nothing to see here apart from the views across the lake, which are outstanding otherwise I think this would have gotten a lower rating.

Lovely walk up to the castle from Padenghe village, once there the castle is interesting but the highlight is the views out across Lake Garda. It is interesting to see how the houses are set inside the castle and people still living there, well worth the visit

It's the ruin of a castle with small dwellings set within the walls. Apart from a very small theatre, there's nothing to see really except these houses which you can walk past if you want to. Nice view from outside the entrance but other than that, not much to see.

We decided, one evening after dinner, to drive up to this attraction. I was pleasantly surprised by the open and interesting atmosphere that we found there. In addition to being a structure from the 10th century, it also offers a Bed and Breakfast. There are also local citizens living in the Castello; one man was out watering his vegetable garden when we walked by. The view over the town below was enchanting too. If I were to return to Padenghe sul Garda, I would probably pay the Castello another visit.
