Castel San Giovanni, Bondone

Castel San Giovanni, Bondone title=

On the road that leads from Baitoni to Bondone, on a rock overlooking the lake, stands this mysterious-looking castle, for centuries owned by the powerful Lodron family

What makes Castel San Giovanni particularly fascinating is its position, resting as it does atop a high spur of rock. From there you can see the whole valley and Lake Idro. As with other castles in the Valle del Chiese run by the Lodron family, the military aspect prevails over the residential. In ancient times, it was accessed by drawbridge. A studded door then leads to a large courtyard that widens in a semicircle towards the valley. The castle can only be reached on foot via the dirt road walk from the car park along the road between Baitoni and Bondone in the locality of Saltone (20 minutes) or the path from Baitoni, near the car park in the locality of Miralago (30 minutes).
