Parco del Monte Netto a Capriano
The park consists of Monte Netto that occupies it for about 2/3: a hilly area whose maximum height is about 130 meters.
From a naturalistic and ecological point of view, the local element of greatest interest is certainly determined by the wood of Capriano del Colle where it is possible to walk on foot or by bicycle, admiring some fascinating landscape, before refreshing in one or another trattoria in front of a hot dish and a glass of wine.
In the quarries area, there are ponds that allow the growth of vegetation of a certain naturalistic interest.
The autumn period is particularly suitable for an excursion and allows you to admire the changing colours that the foliage assumes in this season: the different colours ranging from orange, to copper, to dark red, giving glimpses of rare beauty
Once upon a time, in a far away country, there was a magnificent castle … It is the Padernello Castle in the lower part of Brescia. A fifteenth-century manor, with a still functioning drawbridge, which emerges majestically from the water of its moat. A mysterious legend hovers around the rooms of the Castle: it is the story of the White Lady, a ghost who returns every ten years on the night of 20 July following the magic of fireflies.
Padernello is a small village in Brescia countryside, where time seems to have stopped. Here stands the Castle that for centuries dominates the surrounding territory.
It was the year 1391 in the lower lower part of the Bassa Bresciana. We are in Padernello in the ancient gabianesei lands, now Borgo San Giacomo. After the first fortifications, the manor, which belonged to the noble family of the Martinengo branch of the Counts of Padernello or of the Fabbrica until 1834, was completed. In the eighteenth century, according to the fashion of the time, it was transformed into a manor house and took the form we admire today, since 1861 of the family Salvadego Molin Ugoni, In 1965 the Castle of Padernello was abandoned by its last inhabitant, Count Filippo Molin Ugoni Salvadego. The castle was covered in brambles, exposed to looting and human negligence, although in 1912 it had been defined as of high architectural merit and of national interest by the Ministry of public education.
