  • The timetable for when the castle is actually accessible is at the top, by the castle, so pointless planning in advance. It was a nice walk and I'm sure the views are spectacular however the gates wer...  more »
  • Of historic buildings is the tower and some walls. The castle was built by Frederick Barbarossa and the centuries became a symbol of the city of Como, to be, nowadays, a symbol of the Parco Spina Verde. A nice walk to modest commitment from Camerlata. The place offers a nice view over the city and the surrounding mountains.

  • Every year I venture to this uphill walk to woodland trails going up from Piazza Camerlata and schendendo then the opposite side at the beginning of Via Milan. It is beautiful to walk in nature and not feel smog and noise inherent in the city traffic. When you reach the castello Baradello after the long walk of about 45 minutes is rewarded by the sight of this castle which is well preserved with spectacular view from above the Lake and the city of Como a breathtaking spectacle that repays the effort of uphill. This walk deserves to be made each year at least 1 time to say 3.

  • The best place for a gorgeous view of Como Centre after Brunate. Medieval Tower used for surveillance. On the top you can see Switzerland, Milan, Varese and of course Como Centre and the lake. Must visit if you go to Como!
  • Lovely views of Como. We walked up from Camerlata on a Wednesday morning and had the place to ourselves, with just a squirrel for company. We couldn't get into the tower because it only opens on certain days, but I think the view is better here than from Brunate (off the funicular).
  • The tower overlooking the city of Como is visible from every corner of the city. La Torre del Baradello is part of the imaginary line that connects the castles of Frederick II in Italy and Europe. It can be reached from the city on foot. 30 ' of sweet journey through Spina Verde di Como.
