  • The castle is a private residence and can be visited only during the days "open castles" which take place twice a year (too bad, there were more chance wouldn't hurt) organized by the Consortium for the protection of historic castles of FVG. Possibly groups of at least 20 people can book tailor made tours. The castle is not very big and it should be noted that until the early 1990s was a ruin in neglect. in 1991 the family of sculptor Villi Bossi decided to buy it and renovate it. For this there are various antiquities from various locations. The Castle, while being inhabited, maintains the atmosphere of the era and the visit, which takes place in a room illuminated by candles maintains an alluring charm. Don't miss the view of the Bay and the town of Muggia which can be admired from the ramparts. At the end of the round the owners offer a drink and a snack, how do I use a time at wanderers. the family visit proves all their love to the Castle and old things. Not to be missed if you are in Sydney in those days (the first Sunday in October and the second in April)

  • After our dinner we took a walk through the village and on our way home we saw the sign "Castello di Muggia". We walked up the small hill and found this beautiful place. Unfortunately it was locked an...  more »
  • Visit to the castle of Muggia. Last October 1, the day dedicated to open castles, I went to visit the castle of Muggia. I found myself immersed in an oasis of peace and tranquility that I would expect. Certain castles always have their charm, but here's a little something extra ... Climb the stone stairs and find yourself in a garden Green where the hydrangeas are the corolla area, within the walls of the towers, ornamental plants, a vine with grapes, a stern bench wood baskets with fruit, a semicircular opening with views roofs of Muggia, sculptures ..... all placed in the right place. Medieval music in the air expands and wraps you ... a Knight with Plumed hat and two ladies dancing on these notes an ancient dance ... Then the owner of the Castle, Lady Bossi wife of the sculptor Villi Bossi, explains the history and restoration, took place thanks to their intervention, started 26 years ago, who have devoted themselves body and soul. What we breathe is just that. A great job done so scrupulous and painstaking, some rooms were invaded by debris, and have regained their origin. I will not dwell on the story, as you can read in detail on other sources. We follow Mrs. Gabriella, who opens his Hermitage and begins a tour of the inner rooms inhabited by the family. Very impressive all lit by candles, and here we see a table of inlaid wood, coming from the old shipyard San Rocco two beautiful mirrors Habsburg backgrounds, books and couches, small objects, majolica stoves, paintings, a scale of wood that leads to the upper floors, guest rooms, a library open, Windows overlooking the harbour of Muggia and the Gulf of Trieste and the surrounding hills of the karst. In the dining room lie ahead for us out on the ramparts and along a narrow hole turn around and gazing upon the small town, the Bell Tower, other hills, blowing the stiff breeze. Go down the stairs in the porch, where we welcome other members of the family who offer us a drink and an appetizer, among the sculptures of Villi Bossi. Visiting a little unusual where I breathed the love for this place and the harmony that reigns in this family. Thanks to all of them and the initiative open castles.

  • The most interesting aspect of the castle are the numerous narrow steps and pathways to reach it. The original castle was destroyed by the neighbours from Trieste in 1353. The republic of Venice later rebuilt it but it was soon abandoned again. Now in private hands?
  • Is very beautiful, but tiny. Unfortunately it is private and, therefore, it is not much to see. Nevertheless, when it is open to the public can not miss a visit.

  • The town of Muggia, a small fishing village and its castle are certainly worth a visit
