Ricetto di Candelo, Candelo

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Ricetto di Candelo represented for the medieval citizens of Piedmont a place to store grain, wine, and even themselves in the event of attack. The local feudal lords never intended it as regular housing. Two hundred cells take up 13,000 sq m (140,000 sq ft). The historical records first mention this structure more than a millennium ago. Visitors get drawn into the past because of how well preserved this site is. Try the antipasti at the restaurant inside. Make Ricetto di Candelo a part of your Candelo vacation plans using our Candelo travel itinerary maker.

  • We returned after twenty years in this beautiful Ricetto of Candelo is really worth and if you want to see a corner of the medieval world intact.

  • We stopped in Candelo for sometime now and we were delighted with the ambience of the Ricetto. Beautiful alleys where many movies were filmed not by chance also in costume. Among the narrow streets you can visit craft shops and small restaurants. Too bad we can not visit any of the facilities nor the towers.

  • Fairytale, a walk through the rue (ways of the ricetto) will call at peace with the world. Within the ricetto held many activities and events, there is also some great little restaurant

  • Pro loco territorial and common fans that this place is one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. Many artisans, restaurants and bars are creating yet another reason to attend the village

  • A place to enjoy the medieval atmosphere, Picturing the everyday lives of ordinary people. During the week you can enjoy the silence but lacks a bit of animation involving the visitor.

  • Great setting, quaint and well maintained. This shelter hosts theme parties throughout the year: note those of wine, beer and flowers ... craft of all kinds especially local. Not to be missed
