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... read more

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

Great frescoes. No crowds. Tremendous views. We had the castle to ourselves. The little village had a cute wine shop. Don't miss this as it is really unique.

The classic structure and "easy to wander" ambience lets the mind easily imagine what it must have been like back in the day. Free parking and cheap entry means I always pay it a visit when I'm in the area.

We were on a road trip from Parma to La Spezia and had to stop off to see this gorgeous castle on the way. My seven year old daughter loved exploring the castle rooms and getting up high to see the views. There is a point near the top when you can see through the brick floor all the way... More

Torrechiara provides magnificent view, as it's a great construction in fully original state. Unfortunately, the castle's interior has been gutted of everything by the previous owners before sale of the castle, so there's literally nothing to see inside but frescoes decorating the walls and ceilings. Thus, if admiring great constructions and wall paintings is for you, then it's worth a... More

Happened upon this place while on a road trip through the region and was well rewarded with the experience of the castle's dramatic hilltop setting and good state of build. It was also reassuringly cheap at 3 euro per person admission. The interior decor may well have inspired 'mad' King Ludwig of Bavaria in it's operatic splendour, and we were... More
