Beseno Castle

A great setting for shows and historical reenactments, the castle is the largest fortified complex in Trentino

Have you ever tried on a late-medieval suit of armour? Here, you can! Beseno Castle is an awe-inspiring fortress dominating an entire hilltop: the ideal location to bring the atmosphere of the 15th century back to life.

Stroll the defensive walls, looking out at the broad valley of the Adige below you. Visit the rooms once used as ovens for baking bread. Descend into its kitchens and wine cellars, and, above all, get your hands on helmets, shields and suits of armour to feel like a 15th century warrior for a day. Beseno Castle is the ideal place to understand what life was like in a fortress during the Renaissance era.

It has dominated the hilltop since the 12th century and, in 1487, was at the centre of the historic Battle of Calliano, a turning point in the war between Venetian troops and the fighters of Trentino and Tyrol. The episode is recreated in a number of immersive rooms. Today, the castle is a popular site for visitors and plays host to museum collections and temporary exhibits as well as offering a rich programme of events and activities, particularly for children and lovers of historical re-enactments.
