trento castello del buonconsiglio


Ancient walls, surrounded by myths and legends and scattered all over the region

A rich number of castles and fortresses characterise the entire Trentino region. Its important geographic position between two rather different cultures - that is to say the German speaking and the Mediterranean one - has substantially influenced both the building of Trentino’s castles and their golden age.
