Calavino consists of the parts called Mas, Bagnol and Piazza and is located at 409 m asl. on the western slopes of the Monte Bondone mountain, at the entrance of the Cavedine valley.
Calavino is located amidst vineyards and orchards and has preserved its traditional rural Trentino charm. In the upper part of the village still today a rural-lordly architecture can be noticed at the Renaissance buildings. In the lower village part a medieval architectural style dominates. Several mills, smithies and workshops can be found here. Worth seeing is the Palazzo negri di San Pietro, which dominates the villagescape. This residence has a little tower and a curtain wall, which encloses a garden, a chapel and a vineyard.
Thanks to the proximity to Lake Garda, Calavino has a very mild climate which is even suited to cultivate olive trees and special sorts of wine. Starting at the Madruzzo Castle a path proceeds towards the village of Lagolo and the eponymous lake which is surrounded by ancient beeches.
By the way: every year in July the “Feste Madruzziane” take place, a weekend characterized by history. During these days Madruzzo turns into a medieval village like in times of the Madruzzo aristocratic family.
