This castle sits on a hill, but is not as visible from a distance as Bardi or others. It was however the best of the 3 we visited. There is a price to enter, that I think was 4e. The frescos are still incredible, and you can walk unescorted around much of the ground and 2nd floor. The territorial view... More

Such an interesting place! The castle itself is well preserved, and with the fabulous wall art work in situ one can really get a feeling for the life led by its inhabitants. We had been to Parma several times; this attraction was never on our radar. We are so happy the hotel staff recommended it. There are several "ristorantes" near... More

Such a beautiful interior with art and medieval feel. Wish they would let visitors go to higher towers however.

The castle is one of the best preserved in Italy. The unfurnished rooms reveal the full extent of the "grotesque" frescos. They are by well known artists but in the absence of evidence provenance remains uncertain. Even so the range is vast and beautiful to behold. Two hours well spent.

Lovely trip and very well kept! A shame you could not take pictures on the inside... Views from the inside and the outside were beautiful and would be even better on a sunny day. Only criticism was that we could not take the dog into the up but not surprising when you see the frescoes (for dog owners)

Just visited the castle. Very glad to have been there. Great looking castle with wonderful interior rooms full of paintings and murals. And the views of the countryside from the castle terraces are just wonderful. Really wish that I lived there.

Really beatiful place. Entry is so cheap and what you get for it it's so unbelievable! The view, the castle itself, all the walls..ah...Take your time to really explore the place and enjoy every painting on the wall! If you will have time - close to this castle is great winery - search for Casale del Groppone and make sure... More
