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.

  • Charming well maintained village, you can feel the history of the place, not commercially exploited, deserves more visibility and greater promotional efforts.

  • You cannot describe the magic of this place. An icon of the middle ages remained intact ended today. Set of various films, it seems to take a journey into the past.

  • It's amazing to walk and see Meanwhile a medieval village where there are structures that date back to 1200. I wonder why this is so undervalued, too little known. I plan to go back to April 21 to May 6 in flower from Candelo.

  • Very nice place. It seems like you jumped back in time.
  • A place that breathes history. Very well preserved.
  • Perfect place for a walk.Romantic dinner in the restaurant inside the Ricetto.....highly recommend their deserts !!! Note for the ladys....wear flats!The street's are made of stones that are not ideal for high heals.
  • Best to visit when some event is on. It is normally very quiet and good for a short walk
  • Wonderful historical site, very well preserved and full of artisan's shops and typical restaurants
