Famous building of the Venetian era, called Dogana Veneta, it is located near the ancient port of Lazise on Lake Garda and represented the border between Lombardy and the Republic of Venice. In the sixteenth century it was used (holding the sheep) for the manufacture of saltpeter, a component of gunpowder. In the early seventeenth century it served as customs for the transit of goods between Lombardy and the Republic of Venice. In fact, the boats had to enter it by passing under the imposing arches of its façade, before being able to enter the port by a lateral opening. Later this function failed with the fall of the republic. Access from the lake was buried and the building was used for other functions, including arsenal and saltpetre factory. During the twenty years fascist was "house of the beam". It was the subject of a recent restoration in 2003, following which the building was used as a convention center.
