  • With my husband and a couple of friends we discovered this thanks to an old movie "Lady Hawk" that for some scenes used the Castle. The entrance fee but not expensive and really worth the ticket, the rooms are empty but still beautiful frescoes and seems to go right back in time, also enjoys a fantastic panorama. So worth seeing it because it is another of the great Italian treasures

  • Beautiful big castle. Fantastic views over the fields. Many well preserved paintings on all walls and ceilings. Not much info for English speakers. Fair price admission fee - 3 eur for adults and 1 for the kids. A quick tour - half an hour - Ended the tour with delicious lunch at the Michelin recommended taverna just out side.
  • I just love the place!!!
  • Old Historic Place
  • A walk in Borgetto at the foot of a castle can be visited too. What is there more beautiful in spring or autumn Sunday? The ability to find small boutiques selling fine wine, a delicious restaurant and modern, stunning views of the landscape cicrostate and a castle with medieval features. To stay there!

  • Beautiful well maintained and renovated, high-impact the frescoed halls and views from the terraces. Turns freely and descriptive signs guide you to visit. Only concern modern countertops made in the Chapel and in the great Hall on the first floor!?!?!? Anyway I highly recommend! Price ticket 4 euro and very clean bathrooms!!
