  • A walk in the area, is a must. The reconstruction is picturesque and ideal for everyone with its shops and its characteristic angles. To spend an afternoon out House is ideal.

  • This village of middle age was restored in the 19 th century on the occasion of the exhibition Italian General of arts and industry in 1884. Interesting but disappointing for the paid visit to the Rocca (Castle) and the gardens: must book with a lot of advance. Access to the village is free

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
