Castello del Buonconsiglio

The castle that rises in the city centre of Trento, and which once was the prince- bishop's residence, hides many surprises within its walls: from the Italian garden to the frescoes. Particularly curious are those dedicated to the "Cycle of the Months", where you can observe how the real life of the common people and of the nobles looked like in the late Middle Ages.

Walk on the allures (protected walkways behind a battlement) that overlook the Vallagarina and imagine the archers of centuries ago. In this place, it is easy to feel as though you are travelling back in time when you visit the largest fortified complex in Trentino. And it's even easier when the imagination of children and adults can run wild, with the chance to wear helmets and shirts of iron mail while playing in the tournament field.
