  • A wonderful castle with one owner very kind who explained all the restoration ... the scopertadei remains of the dead Knight skewered by a crossbow and the history of the Malaspina. Visit it and listen to the stories was really exciting! From the tower you can enjoy spectacular views that take your breath away! Too bad this wonderful house close. .. and learn this news I was saddened very much!! This castle as others scattered around our Italy is part of a priceless art heritage of history and culture that the whole world envies us ... .. .but it doesnt institutions ... and this gem is lost.

  • Really interesting the visit in this castle, perfectly restored and several tastefully. La castellana, nice person and available, will guide you in the visit by telling the story of the Knight buried therein. Definitely worth a visit (call for reservations), if you get the chance and desire would be really nice to spend a night.

  • 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.

  • Awesome ... beautiful posto....in especially the owner history beautiful and really tied to our culture. Restored recently but in ten years with many much money, to save a Pearl of Italian tourism. FANTASTIC BEAUTIFUL MUST SEE AND WITH AN INTRIGUING STORY. Beautiful. CONGRATULATIONS

  • One of the great castles of Lunigiana. Great visual impact but renovated castle with too much modernity aiming in particular to it, such as handling any managed ceremonies firsthand from "Castellana", the owner. Excellent views. Developed well both roadway that the ample parking. Definitely recommended for the spacious interiors ... overall just lacks a bit of heart and emotion! What would the Malaspina?

  • The castle is beautiful and refurbished to excellent historical-architectural compliance policy. The owner is friendly and especially helpful to accompany the visitors and tell them about the different stages of the reconstruction of the parts that were destroyed, to recover and of methods that have been used from time to time for the rebirth of the immense structure which involved years of work on the construction site of Italy's largest private renovation. Particularly interesting and curious is the story of the Knight of the ' 300 whose burial was discovered accidentally. Absolutely recommended to visit that will prove to be the most beautiful and interesting of the castles of Lunigiana
