San Giorgio di Valpolicella

In the Valpolicella hills, you will be attracted by a small architectural-landscape jewel.

San Giorgio di Valpolicella

San Giorgio di Valpolicella, or Ingannapolton, which has become part of the "most beautiful villages in Italy", is located in the municipality of Sant'Ambrogio at the foot of Monte Solane. Placed on a top, tight around the church, it is built with the same limestone on which it rests firmly. The village, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees next to its ancient quarries, enjoys an enchanting panorama that ranges from Lake Garda to Verona, from Valpolicella to the Po Valley.

The name of the village derives from the Church of San Giorgio, an ancient Romanesque parish church which stands in the center of the town and dates back to 712 AD.

The town of San Giorgio di Valpolicella or Ingannapolton and its parish church remain intact today in their stone structure. This context lends itself well to re-enactments of the past, to events related to tradition, to marble processing and to the cultivation of vines, as well as concerts and cultural and artistic events.
