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.

Ieri sono stato in questo splendido borgo che richiama molto un luogo di film medievali o fantasy (di cui sono appassionato).

Tiny place, but quaint. If you're around Biella I highly recommend you lose half an hour in this fantastic place.

A due passi da Biella il Ricetto di Candelo si presenta come un borgo medievale affascinante e suggestivo. Meno grande del previsto (si gira in poco più di un'ora e senza correre) all'interno ospita d... more »Two steps away from Biella Ricetto of Candelo looks like a fascinating and charming medieval village. Smaller than expected (turning in just over an hour and without running) inside houses two taverns and a small number of independent craftsmen. Missing a bar. The facilities are spacious and clean. Little parking outside. Recommend a visit, but certainly during some themed event. This mean that it is a little gem of Piedmont.

Complesso risalente alla metà del 1700. Bel posto ma andrebbe valorizzato maggiormente. In un sabato di agosto moltissime botteghe chiuse. Molti stabili poi soffrono di incuria.

In any case it is worth visiting.
Quite interesting place to visit.

Irene GambroBut 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!
Roberto mottaMedieval 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.
Erica ZucconelliOne 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!
