Ricetto di Candelo, Candelo

Ricetto di Candelo represented for the medieval citizens of Piedmont a place to store grain, wine, and even themselves in the event of attack. The local feudal lords never intended it as regular housing. Two hundred cells take up 13,000 sq m (140,000 sq ft). The historical records first mention this structure more than a millennium ago. Visitors get drawn into the past because of how well preserved this site is. Try the antipasti at the restaurant inside.

  • The most curious aspect of this location is the fact that, despite being cared for and well preserved, it has maintained the same medieval appearance over the centuries. And, walking inside, you feel like you're being transported back in time. This is why it is often used by film and television. Among the films shot on site: THE NERA ARROW (1968), The SPOSI PROMESSI (1990), VIRGINIA, THE MONZA MONACA (2004), THE NERA ARROW (2006) DRACULA 3D (2011/12).

  • We went on a Sunday afternoon and everything was closed. Pity cause this looked like a lovely Borgo.
  • Wonderful walled town. Great for an afternoon of easy walking. Very photogenic place.
