Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • We were in France, the Candelo shelter would be advertised already hundreds of Km ... But to us the beauty seems the hide. A unique place, a medieval village (genuine) virtually intact. Worth visiting

  • The Ricetto is always beautiful and even more so during "Candelo in fiore" when the flower arrangements and flower beds created for the occasion make it perfect

  • A bellissimo borgo medievale intatto che, in occasione di Candelo in Fiore, si trasforma in un'esplosione di colori, profumi e sapori. An amazing medieval village to be visited especially during "Candelo in fiore" when you will find colourful floral arrangements, traditional products and handmade crafts all around.
