If you're in the area drop in and walk around this pretty little castle. The views are the castle are stunning. Check the opening times of the tower as on weekdays during the summer the tower does not open until 2.00pm.

This town will bring you back to the middle age and the hole town is very good preserved. You can also find a very nice taverna there, Taverna al Castillo - try it!

Really enjoyed our visit - modest climb up the tower and great views of the castle and beyond. Picturesque countryside of the area. Staff were friendly. Our daughter enjoyed the slide and swings around the back in the courtyard.

We arrived to Vigoleno by chance. While planning a day-trip to Castell'Arquato, a renowned medieval city, and looking for information on the Internet, we found out that the Vigoleno Castle was not far away from our destination, and looked even more interesting! It was not...More
