Overview

The castle overlooks the town and hits the visitor for his gothic architecture. It's front is made of bricks with little arches. Few the windows, and only at the top. The way in was guarded by a wide ditch, a rolling shutter and a drawbridge. Inside you can see still some fireplaces, wood ceilings and a chapel with frescoes.

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.

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.

The view from the castle is worth the entrance fee alone. There are only guided tours only but we were lucky to have a private English speaking tour guide and she made it special. Her English was superb and her tour was informative with tons...More

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 views a great from the castle. Tours take about 45 minutes and are available in English “when they have enough people.”

I guess the guided tour made all the difference as the castle has no furniture. It's history is very interesting and the rooms suggestive. The view over the vineyards of the Langhe is unparalleled. I loved it!
