  • Premise, the castle is a small gem, nestled in greenery, in a great neighborhood. But alas badly exploited, children still closed, gardens open to visitors, the tour of about 45 minutes is all too fast, for those like myself would like to dwell on the details during a visit. Miss a sale of books, booklets, magnets, the castle would bring revenue to reinvest in maintenance ... Too bad

  • I went today with my partner to visit this huge Castle. I say huge because the visit of 6 count pretty much does go around the whole of the ground floor which is interesting but it is a quarter through which you can see and it's a shame. The staff who made the ticket is really kind and without even asking nothing kept the helmets during the visit saw we were running about the staff instead explaining why to like in the Castle (in this case a woman) leaves a little to be desired. undoubtedly competent but really sour and grumpy ... she ran a smile only when us with twenty people we left and went to the end of the round. However the Council at least once to see it!

  • Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Ticket 6 € guided tour. The Guide welcomed us with the premise that she's not a "real" guide but a probation officer. The visit lasted about 1:00 and 15 m and has covered both wings of the Castle but only the ground floor room. The lower floor rooms and kitchens were closed because, due to the temperatures, open during the summer only. The castle is worth the price of admission. Beautiful rooms, furniture, decorations and paintings. The Guide at the end was good and even though with some limits was prepared and most importantly put us passion.

  • only Italian speaking guides. For the money (E 8,- for adults) one may expect also a foreign speaking guide.
  • This castle has the undoubted advantage of being well furnished with period furniture, unlike many others that are bare inside. The vote would be 5 stars but the guide who led us inside the environments has proved inadequate, was driving too fast, explained shortly and was clearly annoyed to be there. In the end there has not even said goodbye, so much so that many had not realised that the tour was finished. If you really want to go do it in late spring/summer, this was a summer residence therefore currently has no internal heat.

  • I hope I can change my mind on almost anything I write but I had a bad impression on this nice place. Do the ticket (€ 8 + € 3 grounds) block and admission timetable, I should start a tour at 17. Since it's early I take this opportunity to see part of the gardens. The "big" part of the Park is really careless, access to internal routes are blocked and you can just go around the perimeter. Benches abandoned and destroyed by time, I can't even enjoy the coolness of the park or rest for a moment. It is not feasible to even come close to the Lakes! Arrival to the castle for the scheduled visit. Let us in at 17.25. Why is it impossible to know! The fact is that, you know, enjoying some Park. At the end of the visit of the Castle (only part acceptable) return to the gardens to see the part around the Castle. Even here I saw too much neglect of everything ... There is even a part that catching up/restoring that is accessible to anyone. I like to enter from the start window open, but I think there should be a little more control ... Unfortunately the uncivilized we are everywhere and it's a moment spoil or dirty part of restoration.

  • That SPLENDOUR the original nucleus of the castle dates probably from the 12th century, when the dynasty of San Martino was emerging in the Canavese area. The first transformation of the original Fort was made in 1646 by order of count Filippo San Martino, according to a project that is traced to Amedeo di Castellamonte. The death of Filippo of Agliè castle appeared as a structure substantially symmetrical to two courts, one indoor and the other open to the village; the East façade was already marked by two towers-Hall facing the garden ordered parterres. In 1763 the castle was acquired by the Savoy as the second son of Carlo Emanuele III, Benedetto Maria Maurizio, Duke of Chiablese: was then embarked on a new, grandiose redevelopment of the complex by architect Ignazio Birago di Borgaro. The village itself was involved in extensive renewal programme with the construction of the present parish church, connected to the Castle by a covered Gallery with two floors, which still exists. Birago called Agliè artists dear to the Court in Turin: the brothers Philip and Ignazio Collino for statuary fountains, the plasterer Joseph Upwind for the decorative features of the large entrance hall. The gardens and the park were accommodated, resolved in terms of strict symmetry green, with a stretch of water along the longitudinal axis. During the Napoleonic domination the castle was emptied of all its furniture and objects, only a marble table failed to take away since walled ... Finally Napoleon's troops turned it into hospice, the Park was parcelled out and sold to private individuals; in 1823 he returned in his own Royal estates and two years later began the last update of the apartments, built by King Carlo Felice. The castle was refurbished by court artists; the sculptor Giacomo Shoulder set up the Hall Tuscolana, where they remain placed the finds in the villa Rufinella in Frascati, owned by Charles Felix and Queen Maria Cristina. In the second half of the nineteenth century it was reequipped the Green Gallery and brought the Park to its current consistency, abandoning the Green symmetries for romantic style can still be seen today. Beautiful the blue room, the frescoes on the walls, the wallpapers with bright, red bedroom with 4 different strings which sounded different in very distant bells to call the servants. Present 2 ghosts who roam around during the day. It was sold to the State in 1939 for 7 million pounds (a civilian House at the time bought with 18/20 thousand lire), the castle was designed as a Museum of itself, leaving unchanged the structures and furnishings. During the summer they'll do a different ride, taking you to visit the kitchens. There is a hallway that connects the castle to the Church across the square and that allowed the Royals to do not go outdoors. Nice little theatre where he recited the poet Guido Gozzano's mother, who lived in Moscow in the early 1900 's and if you have some time, go and visit his residence a few kilometres: Villa Meleto. Friendly staff who accompany and check for tourists, but is devoted to descriptions and detailed stories.

  • Beautiful castle with original furnishings, a Unesco World Heritage site. On the first Sunday of each month admission is free. If you want to visit it all (kitchens, Park and rooms) you have to go another day. To see!
