Located in the historical centre of Limone, in a splendid position, El Castel Lemon House is one of the oldest and most characteristic citrus gardens in Garda, where nature and architecture are well preserved. Built in the Eighteenth-century, as documented in the Napoleonic cadastre (land registry) of 1817, it was restored by the Municipality of Limone who purchased it in 1995 with the aim of protecting and promoting the cultural heritage of human labour which transformed and characterised the environmental landscape of the place. A valuable document and also a tourist resource, El Castel Lemon House is set against the rock walls of Mount Mughera and is a wonderful example of terracing which shows its spectacular architecture of walls and pillars in line with the methods of cultivating citrus fruit. Easily accessible, behind the lakefront and Orti and Castello streets, it has a permanent educational centre and museum housed in a former toll-house used for storing provisions.
