Happily lied on a sweet and soft hill, Padenghe sul Garda is situated in a territorial and environmental context of particular beauty. The locality constitutes the inferior limit of the Valtenesi. Padenghe has ancient origins: some recent archaeological recoveries attest the origin in neolithic age. In roman age, Padenghe was place of rest of the patrician families that - above all in the III and IV century - built here sumptuous villas and temples. During the age of the barbaric invasions, the town - that rose on the shore of the lake - was moved on the hill where now it is: besides a castle was erected, to defense the citizens.
The little church of Sant'Emiliano was the ancient parish church, not too far from the castle, in pleasant position. It has a semicircular apse of century XII, but has also had transformations in baroque age.
The Parish church of Santa Maria, erected in 1682, conserve paintings of Zenone Veronese (in particular, a Madonna with the Child and Saints), Francesco Giugno, Francesco Pagli, and sculptures of Antonio Callegari and Beniamino Simoni.
The medieval castle has conserved the original structure: firm walls made of big pebbles and three towers (the central one collapsed) on the north-west side. Over the entrance, that has traces of the loopholes of a bridge and a pedestrian footbridge, the main square tower rises, without crenellation. The lord of the castle and his garrison lived inside the little castle, built later inside the town-walls.
