  • Unfortunately I arrived at Montalto Dora only in winter when the castle garden is not open to the public. I need to get back on the last Sunday of the month from May to September, hoping that in 2017 the owners open to visit. Though I visited the country, very nice and I walked up to the Castle, route recommended on a nice sunny day like today the day of Epiphany. Then recommend the tour of the lakes around Montalto, namely the Lake Sirio and Lake Pistono, the Black Lake. If you want to have lunch, with a magnificent view over Lake Pistono, I recommend the trattoria La Monella "accessible by car from Montalto.

  • Before arriving at the Castle, not everyone knows that there is immediately near the village after a fountain theatre of ancient legends, a small church of San Rocco, which perched on the road is like a silent guardian on passers-by rushed. The façade and the Boulder at the front door, reported by the Alpini from Oropa who have all restored are from the modern era, but the frescoes inside with their rich symbolism Templar, Celtic, Egyptian are very typical of the middle ages. The design that was discovered in a niche in the wall where he had been deliberately concealed fascinates visitors when the Church is open during special events or by phoning Ms Banchelli 0125 650387. On it I did personally energy studies that demonstrate the deep spiritual significance. The castle is still + nice seen from the Church (see photo) where you can see even the guard where they attacked the horses with the sunset next door. An absolute must even if it is closed and you can't enter, x to admire the beauty of the place.

  • ... The location of this castle is outstanding, on top of a hill overlooking the whole area of Ivrea, its forests, lakes and the Serra morenica ... The Via Francigena to go strictly on foot, we go under, with a glance very charming ... Mysterious, with echoes of gloomy medieval legends and stories, is open only on rare occasions ... But it's nice to see that even so, from the bottom of the trails that run through the Woods. ...
