Our Locanda hosts in La Morra recommended this day trip to us. A 15th century castle near Saluzzo one of the many in Piemonte. The highlight of this castle is the room of wall painted murals. Excellent restoration work. Absolutely outstanding pictorial murals of the...More

Like most castles there is a steep climb to the entrance. The castle served both as a fortification and a stately residence but is the latter aspect which is on display. Rooms are adorned with fascinating frescos and painted ceilings. You almost feel as if...More

The frescos are wonderful, wonderfully painted figures and animals. For the frescos alone this castle is worth a special detour.

There are some beautiful frescos here, but the written explanation does not provide information on artist or time period. There is also a fee to take photos.

Really worth the small walk up. Nice view over the wine fields. Free entry to walk around. Also a museum inside.

Beautiful ancient castle with absolutely stunning frescos. The audio tour, available in English, cleverly described the characters of the castle's storied past. The castle's chapel is also amazing. Highly recommend!

This castle doesn't look like much from the outside. It's actually rather small but has some real treasures. When buying tickets, I bought an extra ticket that allowed me to take photographs (that's a first!), but it was well worth it. You get a headset...More
