One of the main halls, called the golden chamber, was especially decorated for her. Keep an eye out for the painted walls and ceilings, as well as the antique furniture.

The gold room and Interior frescoes are well worth a visit.

Uno dei castelli più belli che io abbia visitato. Meglio documentarsi prima o andare con una guida, per capire il valore di quel che si guarda. La bellezza, invece, si capisce comunque. Gli affreschi ... more »One of the most beautiful castles I've visited. Better read up first or go with a guide, to realize the value of what you see. Beauty, however, one understands anyway. The frescoes are unique, different, well-preserved. The castle is in excellent condition. Shame about the lack of furnishings. At Lord, advise against wearing heels for the visit. Most of the parking is quite a distance from the Castle. The ascent is quite steep. Eventually, the driver can accompany others and sacrifice alone for the hike. Parking at the entrance is very small. At the exit, a passage to the winery for wine tasting and shopping. I have not resisted. I have a question: how come these lovers were able to live so freely the affair?
Be careful of your belongings! All our luggages were stolen from the boot of our car (locked!) within 20min of our stay. Beautiful place otherwise.
Beautiful location and views. Very quiet when I was there. Excellent frescoes.
Great Local Castle...lovely Wine' Hills...sparkly not still...white sometimes red...but 'Malvasia' is Torchera' Official Wine...😉😍😋
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.
