  • Very beautiful
  • It is a very interesting complex, since it is one of the few examples of a consortium castle still existing, that is a set of palaces and fortifications within which the different branches of the same family of feudal lords lived together. In our case it was the Buronzo family who, divided into seven colonnellates starting from the 13th century, decided to divide up the aristocratic shelter of which each of the family branches owned a part. The castle shows a complex structure, in which it is possible to identify the various construction phases that took place over the centuries starting from 1039, the year in which Guala di Casalvolone was invested with the fief by the emperor Corrado II. An architectural cross-section of great importance is what remains of the sleeve of the north-east fortress, in the walls of which you can see the alignments of the holes that served as housings for the beams of the wooden ceilings of the building which developed at the turn of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries; there are also some mullioned windows in the upper part, indicating the formation of a lower ceiling. The examples could continue, bearing witness to the rich history that the castle of Buronzo holds.
