  • Interesting medieval corner in the heart of Turin just inside Parco del Valentino.
  • ogni giorno dell'anno qui si rivive l'atmosfera di secoli passati. every day of the year here revives the atmosphere of centuries past. chaque jour de l'année ranime l'atmosphère des siècles passés. Jeder Tag des Jahres belebt die Atmosphäre vergangener Jahrhunderte. todos los días del año aquí revive la atmósfera de los siglos pasados. siin igal aastal taaselustab sajanditepikkune atmosfäär.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
