Ricetto di Candelo, Candelo

4.5
#1 of 44 in Things to do in Province of Biella
Architectural Building Historic Site
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.

  • But because I'd never been before? Charming and cosy, nice and informal local dehor with a great atmosphere, typical and beautiful interiors with those huge mirrors really luxurious! What about the food ... simply great, never eaten in a restaurant of the "simple" ravioli with butter and Sage get to perfection, pretty darn GOOD! Congratulations again soon!

  • Medieval town interesting. cute craft shops are out of season. Restaurants serve very good food with reasonable prices. If you go during the Christmas period becomes extremely impressive.

  • One of the most beautiful villages in Italy not for nothing! Fortified medieval village, well kept and preserved from the ravages of time, always open for free! Inside the cellars are home to artists who create works of art and musical instruments from recycled materials, painters and sculptors, and many others. Don't miss the events that are organized on the inside, the most famous Ricetto in flower and Vinincontro!
