Cazzano di Tramigna is 23 km from Verona. To reach it you can take the A4 Brescia – Padua and exit at Soave – San Bonifacio (about 10 km from Cazzano); then follow the signs for Cazzano di Tramigna (provincial road 37/a “dei ciliegi”).
The Roman presence in the valley is attested by epigraphs and also by some place names: an example is the mount Sensenigo (from Cercenicus).After the Roman presence silence fell; probably the presence of the Lombards (hypothesis of the double parish – Catholic and Arian – of Illasi) also deduced from the choice of Saint George as patron saint (the Lombards had a particular devotion to the saints “warriors”).
The municipality of Cazzano di Tramigna has in its territory three parishes: San Giorgio martire (in Cazzano), San Bernardo abate (in Campiano) and Sant’Antonio abate (in Costeggiola).
