Rambotti Archaeological Museum

  • Open

The archaeological museum houses an almost complete plough from the early Bronze Age (2000 BC), considered the oldest specimen of its kind in the world. It also collects artefacts found along the southern shores of the Benaco from the Palaeolithic to the Bronze Age. Since 2011, the area of Lavagnone has been included in the list of pile-dwelling sites of the Alps protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The headquarters of the museum are in the former Carmelite convent of Santa Maria de Senioribus. In the beautiful sixteenth century cloister is the preserved sarcophagus of Atilia Urbica (second to third century AD).
