  • The Valentino Park is a great Park to visit in every season and inside there is this fascinating medieval village. To see!

  • A magical medieval corner surrounded by the greenery of the Parco del Valentino, a leap in time than the industrial and modern Turin. Certainly deserves a ride every now and then, it seems to be immersed into the daily life of another era. Relaxing and charming.

  • 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.
  • Adorable tourist trap. Good if you have kiss interested in medieval history, medium-low expectations and money to spend in the shops. Entry is free to the streets, but you have yo pay to get to the actual castle.
  • Really nice place with accessable shops. It is next to a park and a river which are awesome to have an afternoon walk. Very calm and relaxing.
  • 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.
