Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
With a rich history reaching as far back as the 11th century, the is known primarily for its distinct architecture. The main attractions include a grand staircase and galleries that are said to have been constructed based on the designs of the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci himself during the 16th Century. Although there have been a number of changes and renovations that have taken place since then, visitors can still take guided tours of the libraries, furnished rooms, and even the building’s underlying foundations. Even though most of the castle is open to the public, one wing of the castle is still occupied by the Duke and the Duchess.

  • A very beautiful castle restored with passion. Great for overnight stay home in bed and breakfast. Superb breakfast. Very interesting visit. A little difficult booking because the phone does not always. In the end, an excellent memory and a detour to recommend.
