Il castello di Pralormo era sul tragitto del nostro viaggio verso le Langhe, e, documentatici, ci è sembrato un’occasione da non perdere: un castello, una insolita collezione di trenini, un parco, una... more »The Pralormo Castle was on the route of our trip to the Langhe, and, documentatici, it seemed an opportunity not to be missed: a castle, an unusual collection of model trains, a park, an exhibition of tulips, a flea market and, as we saw later, kind and helpful people to greet us, owners including, distinct, patient and courteous: in short, reasons more than enough to stop half a day. It may seem strange that you perhaps spend (lose?) time for a collection of model trains ... but one in which we dealt with was a wealth of objects of great value in all senses and I suppose quite rare to see. We were led personally by count Beraudo through three rooms on the top floor of the Castle where miniature trains are arranged, whose collection began late 800, receiving at the same time interesting information, corroborated by documents and maps dedicated to Italian history and construction of railways, bridges and tunnels, that isn't just around the corner. The models put into functions then I'm really surprise not to get tired of watching: I only mention the demonstration of the movement of a train powered by live steam! Just for kids? Not at all, adults included. Then a visit to the Castle, this attractive show objects really out of the ordinary that allowed a fairly accurate reconstruction of life in the castle: here, however, one small criticism must be made: visit in groups too numerous and consequently time narrowed compared with wonderful things to look at and enjoy: Lords of Pralormo, you might provide to improve this aspect? And then Messer Tulipano, the name of the exhibition: the Park is lovely; flower beds of varying shapes and sizes, isolated or linked into graceful forms, under trees or in open meadows, with extraordinary and unsuspected variety of tulips, accompanied by a host of other flowers that enrich the perspective. But the Park is also rich in other things and there are paths for children which are offered various educational activities, among which I would place the very interesting greenhouse where stopping is a must. Actually there is a small problem, but this time the owners with nothing to do: tulips don't bloom on command, but according to their rhythm, so you might get there at the wrong time, when the bloom is not in place: Needless to blame, right? Though frankly I think this is known to all. We must enquire, explained the indefatigable Lady Beraudo – whom our gratitude for what we have been able to see-and one must remember that there are three blooms in spring, but obviously the time is variable variable being the seasons: those who love photos don't be sorry then come back three times and I think you will not regret this. Finally, the beautiful iron and glass greenhouse: struck us because of the variety of educational items in it and that in itself is worth a visit. Let's put it on the calendar, worth.
Interessante la visita al castello (ben allestite e ricche di oggetti anche le antiche cucine e le cantine); non ci siamo fatti mancare neppure una visita ai 'trenini del conte' che il Sig.Filippo Ber... more »Visit to the Castle (beautifully landscaped and rich in objects even the old kitchens and cellars); We did not miss a visit to the ' count ' trains which Mr. Philip Beraudo di Pralormo she patiently explained. Last but not least, we stayed in the apartment ' The Lumberjack ' (one of the apartments originally inhabited by working at the Castle), furnished with care and taste.

Una mezza giornata all'aria aperta... in questo giardino immerso nei tulipani. Simpatica idea per passare una domenica pomeriggio in famiglia. more »Half a day outdoors ... in this garden surrounded by tulips. Nice idea to spend a Sunday afternoon family.
Zago CristinaBeautiful castle and its Park. pity that the tulips were faded. The opening is April 1 ... better go there in the first two weeks of April the market is not too dear and in line with the context of the visit to the Castle. Clothes and Indian fabrics? Teas and herbal teas? Sinew and boiled wool objects? Belle the stalls of the bulbs and seedlings. Lovely day overall
Mauro BrignoloBeautiful castle with a large Park open to the public. For those who love flowers and nature is perfect. If you visit during the month of may you can admire thousands of tulips in bloom. Don't forget your camera. In the park there are refreshment centers, bars and a restaurant.
Diego BeffaThe "Castle" is a country manor house ... which I honestly did not visit, because I would have to pay the entrance for that too, after paying 8 euro garden access, added to the euro and means to park your car in a grassy field. The garden is well maintained, but small, with the addition of a picnic area, a field mowed rough places (like I can find dozens, for free, in a period of packaged and picnic). Ethnographic museum-like exhibits, cute but trivial, are almost all "from" some sponsor expressly shown. The really negative note is that the parquet, already small, is littered with outlets, tents, gazebos and stalls selling anything more or less linked to the territoriality of Pralormo, almost like a Festival or small "expo" in the country. Laudable products for the purpose of safeguarding the local specialty is artisan skills but ... Why do I have to pay at least 9 euros and a half to get to see them, these outlets? Or pay them to see a private garden of a medium-sized country? Or for farm animals visible (in this case, to the South of Poirino seen more for free ...)? For the record, the end of flowering tulips now offered for the feast of Messer Tulipano were the minor disappointment ...
Renato MA castle still partially inhabited by the original family. For the rest turned into Museum and floral park. Legendary vintage railway located on the top floor of the castle in a giant plastic. Also some specimens of steam tractors. The castle is worth the trip, and restaurants increase the reasons.
Claudio Bernardino ForestiPralormo 2017 At Pralormo Castle, surrounded by Messer Tulipano I think some readers remember the song of "Giants" of a few years ago: "put flowers in your guns". I returned to my mind this morning when I walked in to the annual visit to this magnificent display of tulips. Put flowers in your guns because we never want in heaven ill molecules, but musical notes forming chords for a Ballad of peace, peace, peace "For the truth I really needed. After immersion in war news partially done (Iran) and largely so far only threatened, took a swim in this sea of colours. Pralormo is always impressive. At times even more. Annually plunge mind and spirit In these multicolored waves to quit for one day intoxicated.
