Castello Beccaria reviews
What about this castle? It is the largest castle in Lomellina but the guided tour by the "castellana" turns out to be incredibly small: about 30 minutes! The sympathy of the "castellana" would like to make up for the absence of explanatory historical-cultural contents, dwelling on the "they say" and gossip-level anecdotes alternating with a "foul-mouthed" phrasebook to elicit a smile or a laugh. Furnishings without historical value. 11 rooms that can be visited including the rooms inhabited by the owners. The cost of the ticket, 15.00 euros, is not justified even if coffee is offered.
Among the largest in the whole of Lomellina, Castello Beccaria is especially interesting for the different stylistic phases that can be traced in its architecture. If the corner towers and the quadrilateral plan highlight the features of the fourteenth-century fortress (the imposing ravelin at the entrance is of particular value, with the noble coat of arms and the recesses of the bolts of the drawbridge still perfectly visible), other parts of the castle reveal the alterations carried out between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Too bad only for the not perfect state of conservation.
