The Brescia Hills Park

Overview

The largest green park in Brescia

During a visit to Brescia, don’t miss the Brescia Hills Park, the largest green area in the city covering 4,000 hectares, with dozens of nature trails. The park’s boundaries extend from the city to the hilly areas of Bovezzo, Cellatica, Collebeato, Rezzato and Rodengo Saiano, with altitudes ranging from 200 to 950 metres.

Among the most beautiful areas of the park is the Colle della Badia e di Sant’Anna hill. At the foot of the Sant’Anna hill is a pond fed by a resurgence. On the Picastello and Ratto mountains, you can find World War I trenches and bunkers, which were also used during World War II.

On top of the Colle Cidneo hill stands the Castle of Brescia. Its dungeons are home to a unique species of beetle impossible to find elsewhere. If you are looking for a mountain within walking distance of the city centre, we recommend climbing Mount Maddalena, the highest peak in the park.

The park’s landscape is constantly changing, from forests, ancient terraces, meadows and ponds to plains and hills that you can enjoy all year round. The park is open 24 hours a day and includes picnic areas and children’s playgrounds.
