Regal residences and military bastions, immersed in vineyards or clinging to rocky mountainsides. There are plenty of castles in Trentino, each with its own history and mysteries. From the stately elegance of Thun Castle to the military frescoes of Avio Castle. From the affluence of Buonconsiglio castle in Trento, to the battles fought beneath the walls of the Beseno citadel. Let yourself be transported by history and legend!
