Vecchia Dogana - Salò

Vecchia Dogana

Vecchia Dogana

Vecchia Dogana is the old Custom Office, dating back from the Venetian period of the town. It is situated on the lakeshore in the part which was out of the town walls. On the second thought, it might be even older because the ramparts on the walls have typical Ghibellini style, which is characteristic for the Scaligers.
