  • This castle has a huge gated courtyard to it's front and beautiful four cornered turrets in french antique style architecture with numerous windows and monuments on the building facade. Inside all of the rooms are breathtaking with murals, Built in 'French Style' looks more like a Grand Chateau. I believe it is open some Saturdays for guided tours . We only saw it from the 'Open Top Bus'. Situated in the park of the same name on the banks of the River Po.
