  • Giampiero f.il Castle of Rossena's site in the hills of Reggio Emilia. Beautiful lush hills and near the castle of Canossa (see also whole story annexed between Matilda and Henry). The castle of Rossena is well preserved. The area is worth a visit as well.

  • Castle situated on the hills of Parma. Unfortunately, despite it being the season of Epiphany, we found it closed. We went elsewhere and vowed to return soon.

  • A Sunday drive in our area we did discover a corner really splendid. Parties without any particular expectations, we gathered to have met a lovely place in the province of Reggio Emilia. Special thanks go to MS, ra Franca that with his knowledge, guiding us to the corners of the Castle, we did spend an afternoon rich and particularly engaging. Thank you very much to all the volunteers who make it possible to admire the Italian beauties '! The Castle/Fort is maintained well, and neat and even the small village, we did not expect such good care. It has a charming garden/park overlooking the belvedere to spend happy hours in the quiet of our hills. You can also stay at the Castle. experience! Commendable, recommend to anyone who is located in the area and want to spend an enjoyable afternoon at very low cost through history and culture.

  • One of the best kept castles. Inside we have the opportunity to participate in certain events, such as commemorations, murder mystery dinners or just visits. If you take a guide and assure a wonderful experience tour at low cost, if we add also the visit to Rossenella (front Tower) and other surrounding castles closes a beautiful day with a beautiful view of our Apennines. Easy to reach at street level, there is clearly a walk to get to the Castle (steep), there are parking lots at the base a little along the road and a little in the special car parks set up at the base. Must try!!

  • The castle is developed mainly on three levels: the share of the "Armory" including the prisons, the Armory, the refectory and the cistern, connected by paths of irregular stone steps and concrete. Dimension "piazza D'Armi" comprising the original nucleus of the defensive system, with the square bounded on the North and the East of the building. Environments that are developing at this level are wide and is recognizable the internal environment of the keep which is accessed through a 19th-century portal built in brick. Many venues, after recent restoration, decoration on plaster were found dating from the second half of 1700.

  • Nice Castle well preserved. Small but of great historical importance, was part of the chain of castles Radford of the middle ages, under the rule of Matilda of Canossa, who often stay there. Includes furniture of noble owners of 800. Applaud the great guide that told and illustrated its story with much involvement.

  • Castle of Matilda lovely and well kept within a medieval landscape lovely and magical. Together with the Tower of Rossenella is a historical place that is worth a visit.
