The Medieval Castle at the Valentino Park was built to host the Ancient Art...

The Medieval Castle at the Valentino Park was built to host the Ancient Art section of the 1884 Turin Expo: along the Po river and surrounded by walls, the richly furnished castle rises above a small cluster of houses and workshop. The buildings and the decorations are faithful copies of 15th century castles as most indications for the furniture and the settings came from the Civic Museum of Ancient Art. Within this great exhibition, that was meant too promote the industrial, technological and bussiness development of the city, the medieval castle was intended as an educational and promotional tool.

Enjoyed walking through the borgo and surrounding park. Bought some fresh strawberries to eat and did some window shopping.

We bought the |English guide book and were escorted around the rooms before the Italian group tour. This place was created for the Universal Exhibition in Turin in 1884. It is well worth a visit if you are interested in the nineteenth century enthusiasm for the medieval world. It would also be a cool place to be on a hot... More

It is interesting to see in one place so many historical buildings of the Piedmont altogether, I specially pleasent because in the middle of the Valentino, a big park in the center of Turin. Nice for a relaxing walk.

It is included in the Valentino Park walk. Valentino Park is as long as Central Park in NY (4.2 km) but it is not as wide as the US one. The 'castle' was built at the beginning of the XX Century, it is not an original Medieval one, but it is really worth of a relaxing visit. By the Po... More

Located within the large grounds of the Parco del Valentino is the Borgo Medievale. It is composed of a few shops and a replica castle which is only accessible with a guide. I have visited the castle twice with the first visit being great with an excellent guide and this most recent one being a rushed and disappointing visit. Much... More

We found this place by accident but I’m glad we did. It takes you to the medieval times for a moment. It’s not a huge complex but still have nice architecture and atmosphere. There are some wee shops around, even a fruit & veg shop :) It’s worth visiting if you’re in the neighbourhood. The entry to the complex is... More

We stopped here for a few minutes on a damp November walk into the city from Lingotto. It seems to be well preserved with some reconstructed medieval scenes, and traditional industries such as paper making. We didn't pay for access to any areas, but enjoyed our visit very much

It's probably the time of year or the time of day (during reposa) that we were there, but there wasn't a lot of activity in the village when we walked through. We went on the mandatory tour (Italian only, so we were given English tour books to read which was very helpful). The castle is pretty neat with the different... More

This 'medieval' village was built for the 1884 Turin Exposition and has subsequently been used as the setting for several movies. A lovely place to visit on a warm afternoon with views ver the Po river.
