  • Rocca very characteristic and in very good condition: the weather here seems to have stopped. To visit the inner part should arrive in the early afternoon, because la rocca closes at 17.30 17/18 and leave no longer enter.

  • The fortress of Castell'Arquato is notable for the fine tower with the four towers around. Built in the 14th century in a few years and not restored to change later defense needs is a remarkable stylistic unity. Very nice to see for a fan of military architecture. Contains the medieval Museum.

  • Location well preserved and located on the highest point of Castell'Arquato. It is not ' great, but are well preserved parts of history and memories of the Visconti family. Recommended experience.

  • 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.
