The jewel of Valeggio sul Mincio
Parco Giardino Sigurtà dates back to the 1400s, during the Venetian domination of Valeggio sul Mincio.
In the beginning it was a real farm on which, over the years, buildings, irrigation systems and fantastic gardens were built. In the middle of the nineteenth century, however, the property was bought by the Sigurtà family, who began a magnificent transformation of the park, also thanks to the right to draw water from the Mincio river.
Today, the park is a true paradise on earth, award-winning and visited every year by thousands of tourists from all over the world.
