Toscolano Maderno

Toscolano Maderno extends on two big bands, with the main inhabitated partsnear the lake and the hamlets on the hills. Toscolano and Maderno are two different towns. The first one has an industrial nature, the second one is dedicated to tourism; they grew divided by a small bridge on detritus of the torrent Toscolano. They were re-united in one town in 1928.
Particularly, Toscolano has Roman origin, testified from the ruins of a big villa, of which parts of the mosaic pavement can be seen. The parish church of Toscolano, founded in 1571 and dedicated to the SS. Peter and Paul, contains an important pictorial cycle of the venetian artist Andrea Celesti. Where now the parish church rises, there was a castle with four towers, one of which is now the bell tower of the church. Documents that can help us to understand the age of construction of the castle do not exist. In 1630, during the plague, the whole castle was used as lazaret. In 1645, a fire completely destroyed the castle, leaving only little skeletons of walls. These ruins remained there until the construction of the parish church. In spite of this effort, the castle after the fire was slowly demolished, in order to built with its material the houses of the town and the hamlets.
