Castel Nanno

Castel Nanno rises near the eponymous village and is considered one of the most characteristic castles of the Val di Non valley

The elegant Castel Nanno, which is located in the immediate vicinity of Castel Valer, in its present form dates back to the period between 1520 and 1530. The medieval castle, visible from afar, rises on a hill in the Val di Non valley and was built under the Lords of Enno. The beautiful architectural elements from the 16th century represent the Italian Renaissance. The square building consists of an imposing tower in the middle, surrounded by a crenellated wall with four control towers at the corners. The keep on the north-eastern side dates back to the original construction period and is now partially dilapidated.

There are many legends surrounding Castel Nanno, one of them tells, for example, that witch trials were held at the castle between 1611 and 1615: Three women from the village were accused of being witches. On the first floor there is still a stone with three carved crosses that remind of those dark times. Another legend tells that Melisenda and Ludovico, two young lovers from warring families, were walled in here alive. Even today, during the nights in May, the desperate cries of the two lovers should be heard...

Castel Nanno is in private possession and can only be visited within a guided tour. They are offered and organised by the Val di Non Tourism Office.
