  • With the help of a competent Guide. and costs 7 euro per person, we made an interesting visit to Catellus (or rather, to what can be visited, being inhabited) and the magnificent park, which welcomes suggestions of various gardening styles: Italian, French, English. Romantic nooks, alternating with statues, fountains, small pontoons, spaces for reflection, the games and much more. Amazing the number of animals living free and it would be nice to "meet". Very interesting the paradise of butterflies, collecting lovely coloured species. There are many plants, many rare and valuable. The Castle has a rectangular plan with towers, one of which embattled. Access to it by a bridge levatoio.che no longer exists, while the defensive ditch. It is possible to make also night tours of the Park, which seem to be striking, with the use of special effects.

  • If it were more hyped this place would have many more tourists than the ones it has. Really nice Board a ride not only at Christmas even in spring

  • It really is a curious place: a village from the root authentic, old, but totally reconstructed to give visitors a taste of the middle ages ... The result is a blast from the past (amplified by events and festive occasions, when the shopkeepers and restaurateurs also wear period costumes), useful to make two steps in one place (and time) different than usual. Highly recommended so for an afternoon or for a Sunday drive.

  • Visited the Borgo because the castle was closed. It's a pity the castles are not opened during the morning. However the Borgo Di Grazziano Visconti is a nice place to visit and you can also gave lunch there.
  • the village of Grazzano Is in my opinion one of the most beautiful reality in the area. Upon entering you feel like you stepped back in time. However many shops and activities, and always kept alive by many organized events. And you are then take me your little girl and sees his princesses Elsa and Anne and then turning into an Archer to defend the Kingdom from pirates the game and done with the atmosphere of the village live a fantastic adventure

  • The castle itself is private, so do not always accessible, can only visit the Park. The village is nice but recently rebuild (approximately a century old). The feeling is of being in some kind of theme park for tourists. To visit if there you go but don't go there on purpose. Redeeming factor: the Baker with a wood stove makes great bread.

  • Cute place. Nothing out of the ordinary. However it's good because there are ample places to walk and look at the buildings that, mind you, are of the early twentieth century. Only the castle is medieval. Points, however, are suggestive and very curious. Interesting are the many initiatives organised especially during spring, summer and autumn.

  • Medieval village with small shops and restaurants with typical local dishes. Periodically organize events as antique markets, Christmas markets, chocolate party etc. The castle is closed on Sundays.
