DRENA AND ENVIRONS
Standing just 15 km from Lake Garda, Drena enjoys the lake’s Mediterranean climate surrounded by typical mountain landscapes. Drena’s forests abound in centuries-old chestnut groves famous for producing the world-renowned Drena Chestnuts. The main attraction at Drena is its medieval castle, built in the 12th century A.D., that dominates the Sarca valley and the Marocche. Today this fascinating castle hosts concerts, shows and art exhibitions.
North of Castel Drena depart several trails that offer visitors relaxing walks from the sculpture park to Malga Campo, passing through oases of peaceful and typical mountain country landscapes.
In Drena, worthy of a visit are also the San Martino parish church and the San Carlo Borromeo Church.
