Drena castle is located about 10 km from Arco and 15 km from Riva del Garda. It is a stronghold built to guard the ancient road of the Cavedine valley. Drena castle rises on top of a rocky spur at the foot of which extends the great landslide of the Marocche. Now owned by the municipality of Drena, it also hosts a permanent museum of historical artifacts. The climb up the tower, even if with narrow and steep steps, will delight you with a beautiful view of the Sarca valley.

WALK AMONG “LE MOROCCHE”
The walk, about 6 km long, is not very demanding. It is possible to start directly from Dro or from the car park on the road connecting Dro to Drena. We suggest you plan a half-day excursion, so you can stop and read the numerous illustrative tables located along the path that describe the peculiar characteristics of this unique ecosystem. A short detour on the path will also allow you to reach the rock on which dinosaur footprints have been found.
