The Madonna del Carmine sanctuary, built on the outskirts of town by the Carmelites in the mid-15th century, merits a visit.

Facing San Felice del Benaco amidst the blue waters of Lake Garda is the beautiful Garda Island with its marvelous gardens.
Garda Island, the largest island on Lake Garda, was probably inhabited since ancient Roman days. In 1220, Saint Francis of Assisi established a hermitage there, which was later replaced by a Minorites monastery that founded a theology school. Saint Anthony of Padua, Saint Bernardino of Siena and supposedly even Dante Alighieri were among the illustrious persons who stayed there.
Now the island has a splendid Venetian Gothic villa and a marvelous garden full of local and exotic plants, fir trees, cypress trees, acacias, lemon trees, magnolias, and agave cactus. Garda Island is privately owned and can be toured by reservation only from May to September. Online reservations can be made at http://escursioni.limtours.it .
