a dream holiday
at Lake Garda.
Just 10 km from Desenzano del Garda is located the centre of Castiglione delle Stiviere, now rich industrial pole that has many historical treasures of great importance and beauty, such as the Basilica of San Luigi Gonzaga, the Museum Aloisiano at the Collegio delle Vergini, the Duomo, the Social Theatre and the Museum of the International Red Cross.
This latter was founded in 1959 to celebrate 100 years since the San Martino's and Solferino's battle. At that time, Castiglione delle Stiviere became a real hospital in order to give relief to all the wounded, so that Henry Dunant founded the historical symbol of piety and rescue: The Red Cross.
