  • Discovered by chance on the internet and visited on a warm Sunday in June: it was a pleasant discovery. It is a small castle in relatively isolated area and charming. Well preserved by volunteers who take care of the guided tour. Shame about the lack of original interior furnishings but definitely deserves to be visited! A little hidden gem in our beautiful Italy.

  • The castle is preserved in perfect condition. Halls and rooms, prisons and ice boxes but the real wonder is the terrace with views to 360° from which in sunny days one can see, among other things, the Alps. Next to the Castle, even it can be visited, the Watchtower known as Rossenella. Not perderere

  • Within the terre di Canossa, in addition to the more famous Castle of Matilda (which, however, remains only as ruins) is located close by, and visible Crow with each other, to Rossena. Much better preserved because it has undergone recent renovations, deserves a guided tour with one of the guys who care. In about 45 ' they make you take a trip to the castle with historical explanation accurate and time for panoramic photos.

  • Wonderful Castle, renovated in a great, paying a ticket to four euros I did the tour, really very competent: the castle is not open to the public without a guide because of the risk that we run in some areas. Built by the grandfather of the future Countess Matilda, was originally a tower, similar to the nearby Rossenella which served to guard the valleys. Later Rossena evolved as a military fortress and passed into the hands of various dignitaries after the death of Matilda in the 12th century. Not to be missed, for all the kisses of historical places and nature walks, stunning view especially in spring. Recommend appropriate shoes for walking, this is a military facility and some steps may be poor.

  • Thanks to an evening tour with trekking attached have visited the Castle. Really nice but mostly suggestive Visual. Sunset should be a show.

  • The castle is located in a beautiful area, can only be visited with a guided tour and money is well spent to truly discover all curiosity concerning it. The guides are all very friendly and prepared and explaining it takes a passion really enviable.
