  • The ancient castle of the Marquis of Saluzzo, from early ' 800 turned into prison, the tour includes a reconstructed overview on the major monuments of Saluzzo, but the most interesting thing to see are the old prisons.

  • Had long wanted to visit the old jail remained closed for many years and then finally restored and open to the public. Very nice part of the prison located in the basement of structure memory where you can really see how was structured the ancient prison. Instead the part of "modern" prison was completing transformed and houses a Museum and temporary exhibitions. On this side is a pity that it has not been maintained at least one prison wing to visit.

  • ... is a popular tourist attraction for visitors to Saluzzo. I have had the pleasure of visiting inside the Castle ... long ago it was a former prison, now a museum. Two steps from Castile, you see a belvedere on Saluzzo.

  • ok
  • ...super.
  • Magnificent and amazing. I can assure you that I am not exaggerating. To my surprise inside this building there were two museums (of chivalry and of the prisons). Are made with extreme care in content and in scenography. The Museum gives a lot of food for thought you will come out. Deserves your visit to Saluzzo! (History buffs can't miss it!)

  • Inside there are two museums and an exhibition space. The prison is well served and the Memorial Museum be created in former stronghold cells makes it even more addictive. The Museum of chivalry is a spectacular multimedia presentation of the period with large panels and screenings. My little 3 year old went with home-built sword and shield, Crown and had to do the Prince, fighting the riders and bowing to the ladies ...

  • We got to visit the Castile in the evening, on the occasion of the feast of music. A friendly and knowledgeable guide drove along the walkway, telling the history of the Castle and of the context in which it is situated. Castile, former prison in Saluzzo, currently hosts the exhibition and permanent collection of IGAV (Istituto Garuzzo for Visual Arts), the multimedia Museum of civilization of chivalry and the prison Memorial Museum (located in the basement, in the old isolation cells). All three very interesting to visit to get to know many artists of the current Italian contemporary art scene, to find out the Marquisate from the point of view of the company of chivalry and the Court and to retrace the epoch of Castile as the prison institution (completed in 1992). I particularly enjoyed the exposure IGAV, well organised and pleasantly usable, as well as the charming and engaging prison Memorial Museum.
