  • Castle belonged first to Moscow, then to France (then abandoned), regained by the Savoy and finally by the town of Govone. The Town Hall, and then also by administrative offices (downstairs) the structure and well maintained, unfortunately the rooms are bare, most of the furniture have been sold to buy the Castle. Must see the ballroom and Chinese tapestries 1700 well maintained despite the weather. Recommended

  • The castello di Govone, as Savoy residence, is UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. Perched atop a Hill offers a wonderful panorama of the town and the Valley of the Tanaro. Built by the counts Saleh at the end of the 13th century, assumed its present appearance when it became the summer residence of King Carlo Felice. The King of Savoy was responsible for the creation of the spectacular entrance, designed by Guarino Guarini, which has two twin staircases and some bas-reliefs from Venaria, depicting scenes from the labours of Hercules. Inside valuable apartments of the King and Queen. Bellissimo il salone d'onore, frescoed entirely by trompe l'oeil, with scenes from Greek mythology. Striking the so-called Chinese salt, enriched by the presence of 18th-century wallpaper depicting scenes from daily life of ancient China.
