  • Absolute must if you are in the area. Medieval evocations in Italy have ever tenenkrullend for whom in this area has seen everything, but this is really very well done. Separately, are also sympathetic people you like to explain a thing or two (in multiple languages).

  • The fortress of Verrucole has so high a reputation that identify it as the most important between the fortifications of the upper Valley of Serchi scenically charming location in the woods of the Garfagnana, both unusual and fascinating architectural forms. Visiting the fortress, you can admire the remains of the polygonal Tower, an enclosure of walls that delimits, remnants of various structures, a tunnel leading to the underground casemate, the mighty walls and two bastions, one acute tip, the other round tip. What makes it unique is its intrinsic beauty, but inside there's a beating heart, the Archeopark which is a living museum that is rebuilding the livelihoods of the castle in the 13th century. Through a guided interactive definitely discover the various aspects of daily life of medieval Italian: weapons and crafts (such as weaving) or nutrition and personal care (also the Orto dei Semplici dedicated to medicinal plants). It's a hike to get there, but well worth it

  • Beautiful location. Amazing guided tour from a very knowledgeable person.
  • Well worth a visit. Not the largest fortress but it is well staffed during tourist season, has a lovely taverna serving drinks and light refreshments. Much of the fort is decorated and fitted out as in the old days, giving a nice flavour of the place on it's hey day.
  • Beautiful ... After such visits to castles and fortresses in Trentino the nicest I found around the House! And I am not exaggerating because, thanks to very experienced and knowledgeable people as well as available and concerned questions of visitors, I spent a beautiful day in guided tours ranging from culinary traditions of medieval battles being able to touch and try thanks to the various workshops organized. An important resource for our area, a heritage to keep with this passion demonstrated by various operators. Thank you! I recommend having a snack in the "Rat Warrior" site inside it, accompanied by a good Mead or a traditional drink.

  • Maybe not the biggest structure of time visited, but no doubt a whole wonderful day, passed between interesting guided tours, demonstrations, direct evidence and reconstructions of medieval times. Staff very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. At a price that most honest so you can't ...! There is also an Inn with food and beverages also dating back to medieval times. To see, and a sincere congratulations to the organizers, who have done everything with passion and in a very particular (tests with bow and machines for siege!).

  • The work they are doing Diego (castellano) his wife and her relatives is absolutely extraordinary. Fund a reconstructive plant of the genus with the only funds derived from entrance fees in this country where the policy only deals with fiddles and oil is absolutely fantastic; and you see that it is done with love and passion. I want to thank this guy for his carriage that oozes from his tour and the hilarious launch with the Trebuchet. Him and his goes all my respect. To anyone who reads this review does not explain other: GO for IT! It will be a real sorpresa......se you enjoy history!
