  • It was designed, at the turn of the sixteenth century, as the last stronghold of the Duchy of Ferrara to guard the border with the neighbouring lucchese. Built between 1579 and 1586 qualifies today as the most important architectural work of Garfagnana estense. The space of the fortress with its 1200 meters of walls and six hectares hosting concerts, shows, conventions, food and wine events and fairs that express a unique flavor. Bel panorama

  • Accessible from a curvy road, is certainly impressive. Great event organized at the Casa degli Archi, very tasty meal and elegant setting. However do note that from the entrance there are directions to the "House of Strings", not visible from there, and especially going out at midnight in the cold and fog it was not easy to find parking, having the wrong path. Errors from unwary tourists, but also for tourists is designed this place. It is necessary to place some information plaques.

  • A beautiful fortress, an eerie silence and an exhibition to coincide with the Lucca Comics, what do you want more?. We arrived by chance and we enjoyed an unexpected surprise in the heart of Garfagnana.
