Some history

In 1901 Salò was shaken by an earthquake and was almost completely destroyed. Today only some ruins are silent reminders of this terrible catastrophe. Luckily the most important church at Lake Garda, the Dom Santa Maria Annunziata, was not destroyed. The mosaics on its floor has an three-dimensional effect. The town hall of Salò is in an impressive building called Palazzo della Podestà. There is also an museum with exhibits some artefacts from the time of Napoleon and the two world wars.

Not only tourist but also the Italians love to spend their holiday at Salò. That´s why it was able to keep its originality despite the thousands of tourists who come to Salò every year.
