  • beautiful town on the lake , castle looks great at night , good small bars near the castle
  • nice view over bolsena, interesting museum!
  • The Foundation of the Castle goes back to 1156 when Pope Adrian IV he reinforced his defence on the Via Cassia erecting the Tower maggiore and fortifying the village below. The remainder of the castle was built starting in 1295 when the town of Orvieto-especially through the Mayor Ermanno Monaldeschi-wanted to consolidate its presence in the area of Lake Bolsena. The fortress took its present form remained virtually unchanged over the centuries then despite attacks, looting, fires, earthquakes and periods of neglect followed by partial repairs. It was only in the twentieth century that the State has acted decisively to save the building from ruin back into a museum the few surviving interiors. Justly famous the views from the battlements.

  • Small castle in the medieval town of Bolsena. From here you can enjoy a nice view of Lake Bolsena in the little hamlet with a few wine shops and a museum. The towers are accessible with the same ticket.
