  • A wonderful medieval castle that guided by the dear Mr. Mrs. Clare, stunning housewife, makes it even more fascinating and intriguing. A magical atmosphere that envelops the visitor who crosses, in the silence of the ancient walls, corridors and rooms that have seen some kind of stories and adventures. Furniture, musical instruments, really beautiful and unique decorative objects. A real treat. A visit not to be missed!

  • I took my family on Sunday 11 February to celebrate my wife's birthday, and having two sons one of 6 years and the other of 2 seemed a nice experience. Indeed I was right just arrived already it feels inside a story, as told by several artists who take turns on the stage, telling and teaching how to behave or how to defeat a witch. For lunch we chose the tavern always to the castle with a very good proposal. Ultimately I recommend it to everybody, but I want to say that a day at the castle is a wonderful experience which also has its price, respectable, but they are also convinced that it is right, and that one day you could be part of some history

  • We stayed at the castle on 5 January, after lunch very well in the Castle Tavern that serves simple but very good of Piacenza tradition. The staff and the owner of the Castle are very courteous that between a dish and another knew entertained us for about two and a half hours (just took lunch), pending the guided tour of the Castle started at 15:00. Very good the entrée of sausages, as well as the cream of chick peas! A must try as a first ... The problems of Matilda. All accompanied by a decent Gutturnio Superiore. Finally a sweet white chocolate sublime .. and pistachios. Visiting the castle with Clare as a guide was very beautiful and intriguing, full of curiosity about her is obvious love for this place full of history. Congratulations and thanks for everything. Gianluca and Micaela

  • Beautiful experience among the best made with children. Organization kept in every detail, good menu, animation fairy tale made by professionals who have held 2 to 10 years for 60 kids entranced by hours trapping them in the magic world of the Castle. Needs to be redone. The Castle has many events throughout the year

  • We went the whole family for the event "a day at the Park of fairy tales". Arranged it! We were looked after from arrival to the parking lot (very large) until the end of the day. The Castle and all the ground is maintained and kept very well. The shows were great and involving children and adults. All recovered the medieval life a touch of history since then. Council to have lunch at the tavern all local specialities and guided tour of the gorges. In short, an unforgettable day!

  • I liked it a lot! Oh, and my kids!!! They took me and initially thought the ticket a bit pricey, but I've changed my mind. There's lots and lots of personal organization. The activities are led by a real theater company, are very good at engaging children and parents. We were on a Sunday in September and between events there was the grape Festival (my kids have crushed grapes with feet) and a wine tasting for adults. Funny the märchenwald (our favorite characters? All but especially the Woodman, the Pilgrim and the miner) and Kudos to the Black Knight who entertained an army of children for about an hour. And finally the guided tour of the Castle, very well maintained and competent guides. So I'm excited! I have already spoken with friends and relatives, suggesting the visit at all because we had a really nice day. Thank you!

  • Owner philanthropist-custodian of this beauty, says rightly proud-opened the castle to the public primarily because children and youth can become passionate about history. As a result, the organization is impeccable and welcoming calarosa, with accompanying guides prepared and able to involve young and old. Spectacular and impressive with the fog, can't wait to see him again with the Sun.
