San Michele Castle

Museums and castles

Description

The castle is located on a rocky outcrop and it dates back to the Lombard period even though the first written material regarding the castle is from 1191. Over the years, several noble families owned the castle and between the nineteenth and twentieth century, Bertha von Suttner, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1905 was also a co-owner of the castle. The castle's tower, which is 25 meters high, is the best conserved and most characteristic feature of the entire castle. The castle is in a fantastic position: it's located on a spur of rock that is inaccessible on three sides. An easy two minute walk takes you up to the quadrangular fortified tower from where you can enjoy a great view of the upper part of Val di Sole.
