In the 13th century, the castle keep was built, consisting of a main tower, decorated with Guelph crenellations, two guard posts and the prisons. Castel Noarna also was venue of a famous witch trial where five women were sentenced to death. Today the castle houses a famous wine cellar with more than 35,000 wine bottles.
Castel Noarna owes its present appearance to the Lodron family who took it over after the Castelbarco family. They converted the castle into a mansion. New rooms and frescos were added. Also the little chapel S. Ruperto, a Baroque masterpiece of the architect Solari, was built in this time. In the 18th century, the Lodron family left the castle and Castel Noarna was abandoned.
Today the castle can be visited from May until October.
