One of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy, Castello di Racconigi attracts visitors with its magnificent landscaped park and palace. André Le Notre, designer of one of the Versailles' gardens, had a hand in the garden on the castle's north side. Along the small manmade lake, you'll see the English garden influence, complete with small structures reminiscent of the English countryside, such as a Gothic-style chapel, and a Doric temple. The last Russian czar, Nicolas II, is honored with a Russian dacha, or summer home, on the grounds. For a small fee, you can explore the castle's Neoclassic interior. Reliefs and murals depict the feats of mythological characters and glorify the surroundings. Plan a Racconigi trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Purtroppo questo magnifico castello e con lui il suo parco è destinato a deteriorarsi con l'andare del tempo.

Despite the neglect I highly recommend you check them out because it's gorgeous but were pulled at lucid both would be a true wonder. Unfortunately there is no interest in administration who manages to make it do to its name and its history. The star give only as a warning that someone is out to bring him back to health.

Also interesting is the visit to the kitchens.

We visited the ground floor and the kitchens. The castle is well maintained and there are also mobile. There are special rooms as the room. of chinoiserie. The Castle does not have any type of heating that winter Board of dress warmly. Definitely worth going back in the summer to visit the first floor. The Park is medium sized and is pleasant to walk and admire the façade of the Castle from the Park. In winter is not entirely open to visitors but four steps into green can't hurt!
