Sono stata a Montegrotto per una settimana di remise en forme e in hotel ho saputo dell'esistenza di questo castello a soli 8 minuti d'auto dal paese.

It is generally open from March to November, but made of special openings for new year celebrations: I took advantage of it. I never would have expected such beauty: one of the hidden treasures that every corner of Italy. The Park alone is worth a visit: it really is a magical place with its avenues of trees and the fish pond in which is reflected the Castle. The Castle, which then was a villa (as well as a farm, in years), is majestic and magnificent outside (the courtyard of the Giants is under restoration, held even the naumachie), surprising inside. "Kingdom" degli Obizzi, leading mercenary captains later ennobled, the castle was totally frescoed also outside (not anymore), it remains very well preserved the Interior (for now visited only the halls), considered the masterpiece of Zelotti, a disciple of the Veronese (also found in the Palazzo Ducale in Venice, for instance) which has frescoed rooms with history degli Obizzi. Passed from hand to hand, even belonged to Austria-Este: right here is dead the last Duchess of Modena, after losing the Duchy. The Guide (Interior visit takes about an hour) that accompanied us on this trip in history was well prepared and very professional. Ready to tell anecdotes, history and details of various periods of life of the mansion. Punctual and helpful. Beautiful sunset terrace, overlooking the Euganean Hills. Next to the entrance are planted a selection of antique roses and modern roses. Not to be missed!
A Battaglia terme non c'è molto da visitare però se ci si trova in questo paese un giretto in questo castello lo farei. Meglio ancora se con il proprio partner ;) more »In Battaglia terme not much to visit though if you are in this country for a spin in this castle I would. Preferably with their partner;)
Tranne la parta alta, questa sfarzosa dimora venne costruita in soli tre anni 1570/1573 in un periodo nel quale i Castelli erano considerati antiquati e passati di "moda". Per la ricchissima famiglia ... more »Except the start high, this sumptuous dwelling was built in only three years 1570/1573 in a period when the castles were considered outdated and gone out of fashion. For the rich family degli Obizzi, the purposes of construction of this impressive complex were, using a contemporary term of "representation" with the desire to surprise and impress guests, I guess you could define a "charming mischief "; the Obizzi did not have titles but were more than well-heeled and with the Catajo built a palace to celebrate their greatness. Leaving aside history and various motivations, the Catajo is surprising for its abundance of frescoes on the walls, "auto celebration of life degli Obizzi, and also for the beams decorated ceilings and for some interesting paintings on canvas. The Catajo is surrounded by a large park and in front of the Castle, you can visit the garden of earthly delights; the car park adjacent to the castle is convenient but medium on rainy days and humidity is often muddy. Special thanks to Annachiara, valid and professional guide with detailed descriptions and engaging stories has been able to keep alive the visitors attention. Praise also the current owner, with the purchase and valid restructuring, allowed to return visible and visitable this majestic historical complex. If you area not just think of the Spas and "Baker", found time to visit the Castello degli Obizzi, certainly will be time well spent.
Beautiful grounds and a great guided tour
I visited the Catajo Castle in November. It is a monumental building of 350 rooms of the 16th century. Rich in history degli Obizzi, beautiful frescoes with scenarios of many Italian cities. The construction climbing on the rock of the Hill. The view from the top is breathtaking ... unique. We could not enjoy the beauty of the Garden since late fall is not the ideal season. ... Numerous Redwood trees, magnolia ... Great five star plus for the guide I would say excellent to keep always the highest level of attention and is not easy for an hour and a half! ... My me personally a little more on anecdotes and mysteries as the story of the ghost of Lucrezia, and another female character (told in the lower part of the building before exiting). Let them tell you why fur mats into the pockets of rich noblewomen of the time ... ..! Parking however was in pretty bad shape I would recommend to just RAM him especially in foul weather we muddy! .... Overall positive judgement, would possibly during the summer and completed work!. Slightly high price especially for children read singularly is considered that at certain times you can enjoy the castle complex only partially excluding garden, nursery plants, and more, because maintenance and restoration.
Fabulous location in the heart of the regional park of the Euganean Hills, designated revisited and restructured. Bulwark of scenic beauty today at risk from nearby poured concrete a giant hyper market. Fortunately the Superintendency has recognized the extent of the constraint of the Castello del Catajo and throughout this vital area, but the risk is still there. Depends on all of us to promote and protect this unique place of Enchantment: a castle of the past 🤗 ❤
Wonderful family home Obizzi, with beautiful frescoes (not photographed) illustrating the history and the gradual rise of this dynasty of mercenary captains. Of furniture, art and collections of arms there is nothing left: when the castle is passed by a will to the Habsburgs, was taken all in Austria. But still the frescos knows amaze visitors enough to remain fascinated. The visit is necessarily guided and the guide who drove us was very brave and competent. The castle is in front of you a beautiful garden with a pond and vantage point.
