Lovely and nice castle. When we visited there was a wedding ceremony on the yard, so we did not disturb them and did not see that side very well.

Ok Italy is full of amazing historic places and here in Formigine village I visited this Amazing little castle in middle of this historic square in face of a Cattolic church. They show that time by time some restoration was done to maintain the origin

It is most lovely in springtime with green grass and a tree with purple flowers in front of the castle. It is also amazing when decorated with Christmas lights. There is a park and a redtaurant inside. The museum is open only at the weekends...More

Nice garden inside the walls and some geological findings. It is worth a visit, if you don't have to drive a long way.
