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.

  • I really like the Candelo shelter and "find out" when there is a soul. that is, there are no events, casino, parties ... is even better! I have come to know "who" during the week has its own craft shop and working in absolute silence, but with much love, I rediscovered the wonderful CAT BEIGE, symbol of the Ricetto ... that love was immediately put to belly up to be pampered ... that I'm sweet and hairy heart CAT LADY D. O., and you want two cuddling I don't make my beloved CATS? come on ... Yes! and then you can admire everything calmly ... no hurry ... enjoying every moment of this magical place ... one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and what has ravished my heart. Then admission is free when there are events and is well worth a visit. a walk ... a chats with the candles go. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality, you are always beautiful.
