Ricetto di Candelo, Candelo

(650+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
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.

  • Spectacular place, sin is undervalued, yet its potential is enormous. Great investment of time for a stroll under the spring sun, nice view from his turret, shame it's lacking there communication and activities dedicated to its enhancement not only commercial.

  • Medieval complex characteristic. It is a fortified structure built by the people of Candelo shelter and protection of property and persons. Shame about the low level of activity of small craft that could enrich your visit.

  • One of the best preserved medieval towns in Italy and Europe. Village of a noble but wanted by the people (in the 13th and 14th centuries) to defend the goods of the community in fact, Ricetto refuge means shelter. Having never been inhabited housing has not been subject to necessary changes and hence its uniqueness and conservation. In the rue (alleys) you can admire small cute craft shops where you can see and buy items made and hand-painted. Well worth a visit

  • 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
