The west shore of Lake Garda features a series of wonderful parish churches and shrines: they are the real examples of an extremely lively world whose humanity and concreteness are expressed by every stone of which these important buildings are made up. A visit to said churches, as suggested by the itinerary, is therefore highly recommended for many reasons.
