The Scaliger castle of Sirmione (Italy) is a fortress from the Scaliger era, a gateway to the historic center of Sirmione. It is one of the most complete and best preserved castles in Italy, as well as a rare example of lake fortification.
The castle is bathed on all sides by the waters of Lake Garda, and on one of these sides was built, shortly after the construction of the castle, the dock, which was once the place of refuge of the Scaliger fleet.
The walls and the three massive main towers are characterized by dovetail battlements, behind these three towers emerges the “mastio”: 47 meters high, below which were the cells for prisoners.
