Ledro

Overview

Ledro is a locality immersed in a naturalistic context of great beauty that frames the limpid waters of the lake, reflecting the green hues of meadows and forests. An oasis for sports and relaxation, but also a precious opportunity to discover how our ancestors lived in the Neolithic era. In fact, Lake Ledro is most famous for the discovery, in 1929, of an extensive area of Bronze Age pile dwellings on the eastern shore, which was discovered after the waters subsided during the construction of the Riva del Garda hydroelectric power station. This Neolithic village, dating back 4,000 years, has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 2011. The Pile-Dwelling Museum of Ledro, in the locality of Molina, is the most important pile-dwelling site in the whole of Europe in terms of extension and preservation: here you can visit an accurate reconstruction of the Neolithic village with huts on stilts, which have been furnished inside with objects and artefacts from the Bronze Age.
