Belasi Castle is an important complex from the 12th century, built for community purposes rather than as a guard post and defensive structure. In the course of time, the castle changed hands several times and passed into the possession of all the important noble families of the Val di Non valley, including the Belasio and Sporo families. The Counts Khuen from Termeno also ruled over the mighty complex for a while. The today’s appearance traces back to Pankraz Khuen Belasi.
Castle Belasi is surrounded by a high circular wall and presents itself with very special building elements such as the two bretèches that protect the main entrances and the ravelin. In addition, there is the forecourt, the inner courtyard and the imposing pentagonal granite keep, which characterises the entire appearance. A circular stair leads to a room called “Sala d’Assedio”, which offers an unforgettable panoramic view on the Val di Non valley and the surrounding Belfort, Sporo, Thun and Valer Castles.
Today Belasi Castle is owned by the municipality of Campodenno.
