Overview

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.

A rather bleak look at medieval Italy. Some gift shops, but very little done to enhance ones visit. A longish walk through the park to get there, but it is free!

This replica of a medieval castle set in this wonderful park beside the river Po, is a delight and fun to explore. Definitely child friendly and something to spark the imagination.

This attraction is well worth seeing on it's own merit but also because it's different to anything else I saw in Turin. You actually feel you are being taken back in time especially when wandering around the inside. It has lovely turrets, a small courtyard,...More

Reconstructed medieval village - which houses a mixture of the best dwellings of medieval Piedmonte and Valle d'Aosta. The centrepiece of the village is the Rocca - a 15th century castle (cost for guided tour).

It's funny that the reconstruction itself is now 130 years old, enough to qualify as a historical building itself. We had a walk through the medieval town, great feeling, but could not visit the fortress as it was only by guided tour at fixed hours.

This is a medieval-style village that was built in the late 1800s and it looks really authentic and is set in a beautiful park. Really interesting and worth going.

The survival of this 1884 recreation of a medieval village and castle was a wonderful discovery on the banks of the River Po. It was like stepping back in history.
