    Borgo medieval allows you to get out of the city a short time and you feel dive in the middle ages. Why not?! The Castle and the garden are relaxing, nice atmosphere.

    This village is just awesome and beautiful. All the buildings are of brick, which is rare. In addition, through a beautiful garden for access.

    Going to the parco del Valentino in Turin we run into this enchanted place, really seems to live a fairy tale coming from the entrance you find yourself in an atmosphere of past times, small shops selling souvenirs of the medieval village not only sympathetic but also weird & bizarre of all kinds. We did in the morning (last day after August) a guided tour of the Castle and grounds and were quite amazed at the rooms of the rock that look like a real medieval castle, vist the Guide Andrew which made a pleasant visit explaining in detail the various plans, from the anecdotes of the dining room on the main floor at prisons. The garden should be slightly improved but if faithfully recreates a medieval garden is fine ... ah all topped off by beautiful squirrels that make the atmosphere even more magical!!!, in conclusion, highly recommended for everyone, families and groups, especially for the guided tour.

  • Good place to stop and rest during a long walk inside Parco il Valentino
  • Delightful reconstruction of a medieval town. Highly recommended the guided tour of the Rocca - friendly and very knowledgeable guides provide all kind of insights into everyday life in a medieval fort.
  • This is an artificial "medieval" castle, which is soo cute! On the inside you have many little lovely shops and it really has a medieval atmosphere. It's intricate irregular corridors and narrow alleys are candies to the eye. Since it is not very big (I believe the actual ones tended to be much bigger) it feels really cute (like a baby castle :)) ) Enjoy your stay.
  • I didn't actually go inside the building, but behind was a really lovely market which was a variety of South American, Arabic and African themed stools and street food. I had some Peruvian food which was very nice. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed at around 7pm and I watched an Arabic man making greetings cards. Well worth a visit.
  • A mighty experience in the center of Turin and its biggest park: for one day you can be launched in the middle age with typical ancient building and shops. It is amazing!
