Bevilacqua

By the V century the area around Bevilacqua would already have known the presence of humans. Until 589 A.D. there had been a settlement of the Ancient Venetic people on the banks of the River Adige.
Since that time the gentle expanses of the Veneto countryside have surrounded the centre, where stands the mighty castle of the Bevilacqua family, enfeoffed here by imperial decree through the Scaligeri family.
Today the caste soars in renewed splendour.
