  • My children were delighted of the tour to the Castle. Improved compared to 20 years ago. Clean and well maintained. Available also the owners of small shops in the village. Great for a day trip.

  • It's picturesque and in a lovely spot, but it is essentially a 19th century reconstruction, a fantasy which works very well didactically but by no means an ancient monument. The Castle and gardens are a fair walk from the nearest public transport spot and the park is to be avoided at all cost when dark as it's used by drug pushers.
  • One of my favourite spots in all of Turin. It's like diving into a different, medieval world. Also, the shops inside are a treat if you're interested in medieval artifacts.
  • loved how calm and serene this place is. make sure you walk down the end of the road and see the gate that opens to the river.
  • 19th century architecture. Resembles a place. It has a huge wooden door entrance.
  • Although it is a re-created medieval castle, it is certainly a place to visit if you come to Parco Dal Valentino.
