  • The superb location at an altitude of 566 m, the thousand-year history, the composite architecture and unique floor plan make this rock one of the highlights of the Val Tidone and the entire surrounding area. Rugged and isolated sandstone from the rock on which it stands is very extensive and spectacular panoramic views from the Apennines to the Po Valley up to the snowy peaks of the Alps with the mass of Monte Rosa. The fortified complex, interesting and very articulate, in its various components can be read like a book of history, from the earliest records dating back to the year 1000 (but the origins are more remote) up to the episodes of the resistance to fascism, through UPS and downs over the centuries saw several protagonists, including the family From worm-had by Gian Galeazzo Visconti in 1378-talking retained possession until the end of the eighteenth century. Of great charm, with many picturesque spots, the ancient and very deep well (with, apparently, of secret passage to the outside), the 16th century Loggia, a nice little courtyard, large frescoed room. Definitely a sight to give priority to visiting the Val Tidone and the province of Piacenza.

  • Rocca left a bit to go. The Guide/guardian tired and out of breath tells without any enthusiasm the vicissitudes of this place. Legend has it that one of the first owners was the father of Sante Liberata e Faustina; then the property of the monks of San Savino, finally stately home of Dal Verme. Now private property.

  • The fortress is a castle on a cliff between the val Tidone, val Chiarone, in the province of Piacenza. Is located at 564 m above sea level in height that still allows a panoramic view over the Po Valley and the surrounding valleys. It is possible to visit and stay.

  • Nice place, the tour is only in Italian...
  • The fortress is very old and structure (where destroyed in the past) was rebuilt with attention. The visit is made with qualified guide. The décor as it is very well stated in the Guide, is an approximate "reconstruction" is made by the owners. The bed and breakfast is certainly fascinating but needs heavy renovations and cleaning is approximate.

  • Beautiful fortress, thanks to owners who have restored allowing people to visit, spent happily the ticket money that will go in part for maintenance. Will be mesmerized when looking from the tower to the Plains, gorgeous scenery
