Lovere is situated at the extreme North of Lake Iseo and it is well-equipped holiday resort. The municipality develops along the coast, geting narrow between the mountains, and the green vegetation reflects in the waters of the lake. The territory is worth a visit especially for the beautiful views and inlets that you canglimpse from the state road 469, full of curves and bottlenecks. The village has ancient origins dating back to the XV and XVI centuries. Under Venetian domination it became the centre of "Quadra" and an important manufacturing centre.
The old town is interesting because you can see a mixture of medieval and renaissance buildings. The south side, Lido Cornasola, is undergoing a development phase for tourist and sports facilities. The village presents numerous religious buildings that climb up the slopes of the imposing mountain. Above all, the large XV century basilica of Santa Maria in Valvendra is worth a visit as it houses XV and XVI century frescoes, including works by Moretto and Andrea Fantoni's altar piece. Among the civil buildings, the most remarkable is "Palazzo e l'Accademia Tadini", situated on the lakeshore. The building has a neoclassical-style fa├žade and it is the centre of an art gallery that houses valuable works by J. Bellini, Parmigianino, Bordon, Palma il Giovane, G.B. Tiepolo, Hayez and Canova.
