“Affordable, beautiful, Castle, ABC!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

It's really cool to have free rein to Tralee about the castle and the views as well as the frescos are AMAZING! There is a little trattoria in the village just outside the gate of the castle that is yummy if you get hungry while your there.

“Wonderful castle, impressive scenery”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

The castle itself is very impressive, and tickets are very reasonable (3 EUR). My children enjoyed the walk to the castle interior through a tunnel, and the view from the castle walls and several terraces is very impressive (vineyards, hills, and a river valley). The frescos and architecture inside the castle are lovely. There is a nice bar outside the castle too - a good place for lunch.

“an impressive sight”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Even from a distance the castle draws you in. Torrechiara (clear tower) is a classic example of Italian castle architecture on the outside, with some typical frescoes on the inside. Its location also provides some incredible views of the Langhirano countryside.

“you can feel the middle ages”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

I like the clean and essential restructuring of the castle, I suggest a guided tour to not loose the detail of the story
