Historic villas and countryside
on the outskirts of the Prati Stabili
Populated since prehistoric times, findings from the age of the Gauls have led to the hypothesis that it was also occupied in the Celtic period, and likewise the probable discovery of two superimposed necropolises in the nineteenth-century confirms the existence of a Roman settlement in the Soave area. With the arrival of the Gonzaga family arrived, the village of Porto, divided into Soave, Favorita and Schiarino, was able to defend itself, as it was then equipped with walls and bastions.
Of note is the Palazzo della Favorita, which was built by Nicolò Sebregondi between 1615 and 1624, and which was to become the court of Ferdinando Gonzaga. Only a splendid ruin remains today. Maria Theresa of Austria had the fortress and the canal irrigation system renovated and, in 1851, Porto was connected by Austrian domination to Vienna by the S. Antonio railway. In the hamlet of Soave, you’ll discover the wild scenery of the Mincio Valleys, a vast, evocative wetland formed by the river.
