Gargazzone (Gargazon in German) is a quiet and pleasant town in the province of Bolzano, set in the Adige valley, not too far from Merano. It is the ideal location for relaxing holidays, in strict contact with nature and a good occasion for walks, on foot or by mountain bike, along the cycle paths that connect the Adige valley with the Lake Garda.
The place name probably derives from the personal name "Gargeza" and is mentioned for the first time in 1288.
- Kröll Tower, dating back to 1240, was originally a watch tower and is decorated with the coat of arms of the first owners, theTrautsons;
