The history

The building, located on a hill overlooking Bussolengo, was built between 1859 and 1861 to meet
the dual need to protect Verona and the communication routes with Austria through the Val d'Adige.
The strategic position: this spot overlooks not only the city of Verona and the Atesina valley but also
the entire southern stretch of Lake Garda, Monte Baldo and the hills of the Garda area.
In 1866, the fort, which was armed with about fifteen canons and guarded by about eighty men,
passed into Piedmontese hands. Renovated in recent years, it has fully retained its original structures
and characteristics and now houses Ristorante Al Forte.
