Moniga del Garda

Moniga, Lake Garda

On the Brescia side of Lake Garda, Moniga is a village that was once strongly linked to the agricultural culture of the area.

The town’s well-preserved ancient castle is the symbol of the town. Moniga is known for its delicious cuisine and the production of Chiaretto wine, so much so that it is known as the ‘City of Chiaretto’.

Curiosities: The origin of the name 'Moniga' could be associated with the Greek deity 'Munichia', but there is also the hypothesis that it derives from the Germanic word 'Mom', meaning 'exposed in the morning'.
