What you can see
The castle is an important evidence of military architecture: it saw a lot of sieges but was never captured.
The guided tour visit every room, from the prisons to the top of the tower, from which you can see a panorama of all the land.
Here you can notice the strategic position of the castle: you can see other castles (Valverde, Pietragavina, Torre degli Alberi, Montalto Pavese) till the Pianura Padana. During sunny days, you can see the Alps embracing the hills.
Unique is the system of inner floors, with a lot of main and secondary stairs: this aspect of the castle is very singular and is not only the effect of centuries of changes.
The restoration of all the building is complete and now the Town Hall is trying to retrieve ancient furniture, which are giving back to the rooms their ancient splendor: the Main Room, the Music Room, the Arms Room, the kitchen and more.
But what impress more is the majesty, the solemnity, the emotion you can feel being immersed into one thousand years of history, retracing step by step the life of people who, passing by, left here a trace of themselves, a fragment of their own life and time.
This legacy was taken by the tourist guides, the custodians, the town administrators and everyone who loves this magical place and works to transmit the heritage of the past to build a better future.
