Lido Po

At the confluence of the Crostolo stream with the Po River there was once a garden belonging to Prince Gonzaga.


This garden, which was originally called "Jardin del Principe" and has now disappeared, is clearly marked on a map of Guastalla and surrounding areas made in 1689 by D. Joseph Chafrion ¹. It is still possible to see the raised mooring of the old pontoon bridge built in 1927-29 now replaced by the modern bridge. A charming feature is the characteristic Chalet now turned into a restaurant ²
