Art & Culture in Brescia

Brescia is a wonderful province, where the Italian art and culture left an important heritage. In fact, the province of Brescia praises three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the first is “Lombards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 A.D.)” in Brescia, the second are the “pile-dwelling sites of the Alps” on Lake Garda and the third are the Rock Engravings in Valle Camonica, which is also the first Unesco site in Italy.

And that is not all! The territory of Brescia is characterized by unique treasures, such as the “Vittoriale degli Italiani”, the fascinating house-museum of Gabriele D’Annunzio, and the two city cathedrals of Brescia, which are considered to be extraordinary throughout northern and central Italy. Every year cultural events enliven this city of art and its provincefull of palaces, castles and mysterious legends.
