  • The fortress of Mont'Alfonso is located just outside the historical centre of Castelnuovo. It's advisable to get there by car, but there is also a walking trail, called Ariosto's Trail leading to the gates of the Fort (not difficult walk of about 25-30 ' from Dan). The fortress has at its core a "modern" appearance with buildings all restored, beautiful home with bows and the Villa in liberty style. Only the old keep maintain state. Various events are held in the Fortress. Don't miss the opportunity to lie down in the meadows and enjoy the peace of the place in addition to the beautiful scenery of Central and elevated position. Also a restaurant but it is good to check if it is open.

  • Grand fortress above Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. Ramparts well restored with possibility to walk easily all over the walls and be able to enjoy the beautiful views of the Apuan Alps and the Pania di Corfino. A few parking lots for cars and buildings within rebuilt and unrestored. The Central keep unfortunately yet to be restored. Worth a visit for autumn or spring.
