Among the moraine hills


In the past centuries Castenedolo has been one of the preferred destinations by the rich and aristocratic families of the city.

They used to spend the summer months and enjoy the rural quiet of the countryside and vineyards. It is not a coincidence that many of the palaces and the villas still have today well-preserved wine cellars decorated in white marble and large oak barrels.

There were not only palaces and villas with huge and important cellars which characterized the hills.
In 1497 the Queen of Cyprus, Catterina Cornaro, who was one of the most important families in the Venetian Republic, during her official visit in Brescia took the advice of her brother Giorgio (Podestà in Brescia) to sojourned in the village, being delighted by the vineyards on the hill.

In August 3rd of 1796, Napoleon Bonaparte decided to place in Castenedolo his general headquarters for the battle he lead in Lonato, a small village close to Castenedolo.
Palace Carrara, where he quartered, is still one of the beautiful palaces that characterized the village today.
