Gargnano, dominated by Mount Denervo, consists of the town of Gargnano, whose houses cluster around the small port, and twelve hamlets, some on the lake, others situated on the gentle slopes, and still others in the hinterland. All are linked by convenient scenic roads that travel through olive groves and cross meadows and woods. Nature and art enhance each other in this area rich of olive trees, lemon trees and Mediterranean vegetation. Usually building of a certain architectural and historical importance can become very famous thanks to the various possibilities of sports offered (sailing, athletics, archery, clay- pigeon shooting).
