The flavours of Gargnano

To discover the flavours of Gargnano, there's not a better place to start from, than the lemon greenhouses. Nowadays, Gargnano can provide more traditionally maintained lemon greenhouses including some centuries-old trees, such as the limone "madernina" (Maderno lemon), the rare cedro di Salò (Salò citron) and the limone lunario (almanac lemon), than any other municipality .

Gargnano's hamper of products also includes: fine fish from the lake, Extra-virgin olive oil  and the local cheeses of Briano, Costa and Montegargnano. The fish is caught every night by  Dominici family, locally  known as "Frans" and  sold the following morning outside the old town hall, in a traditional fish market. The oil is produced by pressing classic cultivars such as casaliva and leccino, or the rare local variety gargnà. Capers grow naturally in the walls of the old lemon greenhouses.
