  • History of the rock Viscontea is rooted in the third century. b.c. on the ruins of a Roman castrum square. Built for defensive purposes and military, has undergone several reconstructions during centuries. until the 14th century. C, under the rule of Luchino Visconti, took over the current structure. The fortification is not come intact to us. The tallest Tower dominates the valley below, while controlling what was happening, being "an important vantage point between the Po Valley, with the city of Milan and the foothills of the Apennines leading to the sea" as an ancient document. It would be useful to read up before the visit, but, although approaches as well, it is interesting and engaging in its Majesty. Inside is a kind of Museum with instruments of torture. You access upon payment of a ticket. Priceless view. Shame to lose her!

  • The Tower gives a special charm to the medieval hamlet. It can be accessed for a fee. Within an exhibition on war machines and instruments of torture. Climbing to the Summit you can enjoy a privileged position on the surrounding areas.

  • For those who want to get (5 euro adults, 4) is a disappointment. You can only climb the Tower: in theaters are showcasing medieval war machines mixed with torture instruments and depictions of their use sometimes difficult to digest for children (among other things, I would have liked to know before you go in exposing this stuff). Beautiful panorama from the tower but the rest of the castle is crumbling and the small park is a disappointment. With all the beautiful castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza, this can spare you the inside visit: I would to visit only externally to the picturesque village in which it is inserted.

  • I did enjoy the panorama from the top of the tower. The rest of the castle ruins but still nice to look at. The exhibition of torture instruments is reported at the entrance it was enough to read the sign.

  • Disappointment, poorly maintained, dirty, unsafe maintenance daresay nothing at certain points. Once again another exhibition on instruments of torture, seen and reviewed, but a photo exhibition and documented on the history of the place? 5 euros admission an exaggeration.

  • Beautiful with great restaurants, view from rocca viscontea towards the surrounding hills breathtaking
