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.
