  • Beautiful location and renovated Castle very well on the outside but if you are a fan of the strongholds that have kept indoors and outdoors (and I am one of them) probably won't be disappointed. The castle was transformed into a resort where you can sleep or organize events and has nothing inside it that prompts or distinguished his past if not playing Knight skeleton of Gragnola positioned at the place where he was found and the castle chapel. The 360-degree view from the main tower. Very nice and friendly guides who accompany the visit even if some more explanation about the origins and history of the Castle did not fail for sure. To review also the signs posted at the front gate that give exact news is not entirely on the entrance fee and on visiting hours. Honor and merit the current owner who had the courage to buy and renovate a so impressive that before his arrival was reduced to a pile of rubble! If you do a search on the internet you can find photos and pictures of the Castle before renovation and make that account the task done to bring it to current conditions.

  • We had dinner at this wonderful Castle during the Spanish themed evening. It was a wonderful evening with great food with shows and entertainment during the evening. The location is exceptional: views across the Valley, beautiful rooms that recall the past and kindness from all the staff ready to satisfy requests.

  • I confess that I stumbled across this Castle a while to rebound. And so we found a gem. The Guide welcomed us although improvised and overtime by visits. Around the Castle, the story and the beauty of the place we were fascinated. Finally they offered to stay for a aperipranzo that turned out to be a lunch for all purposes, yummy and served with friendliness and familiarity within a Hall of the Castle.

  • Nice
  • The castle of L'Aquila is in Lunigiana: it is an imposing structure on a hill that dominates the medieval village of Gragnola, situated at the confluence of the Aulella streams and shiny. The Castle, like many other of the Lunigiana area, is out to control the traffic of people and goods that turned into the surrounding valleys: still today the castle with a look you can have almost any Lunigiana under control. Today is composed of a single building that surrounds the Tower, consisting of four floors, and the other three corner towers, while on the walls to the North are still visible some sections of battlements. The slow decay, and further damage suffered in the earthquake that hit the Lunigiana on September 7, 1920, led to its abandonment in the early decades of the 20th century. In 1996 it began a large restoration project, terminated after ten years: now the Castle presents itself in all its beauty and grandeur.
