Amazing panoramic view. We had a very interesting guided tour in English about the history and architectural design of the castle. Although the tour was supposed to be in Italian the majority of the group were English speakers so our excellent guide spook both.

I would highly recommend the tour of the castle interior. If you don't speak Italian call ahead to find out when tours are offered in Engish.

It was spontanious that we went there. But we are really glad we did it. Really nice stroll. Peaceful area (maybe because of siesta time). We didn't enter the castle but it was worth of visit anyway. Beautiful hills around.

When you enter this small town, the castle is visible and you just have to go there, in hot weather it´s a bit of a challenge, but when you get there happiness is all you feel, magnificent view is the gift.

The Castle is a wonderful example of a defensive castle. You really must take the guided tour to get the full experience. Worth every penny! I was fortunate to be there at sunset with fantastic colors and views of the entire area including Monte Viso...More
