  • The story of Torrechiara castle is also the story of the great love between Pier Maria II Rossi and Bianca Pellegrini. Because of its well preserved state it is also a location of the movie Ladyhawke. It is a must to visit it!
  • 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.
