Beseno Castle

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

Castel Beseno is an impressive fortress occupying the top of a whole hill, in a dominant position over the Adige Valley. The castle can be reached from Besenello, halfway through Trento and Rovereto, and is now the venue of cultural events and historical reenactments.

The great bastions that characterize Castel Beseno date back to the 16th century, when the castle was adapted for battles involving the use of fire arms. Today, in addition to the courtyards and buildings of the fortress, once used as kitchens, bread ovens, cellars and storage rooms, it is also possible to visit and walk along the parapet walk, with panoramic views of the Val d’Adige and the valley leading to the Altopiano di Folgaria plateau.

Also on display is a collection of original or true copies of weapons, all meant to be touched: everyone is invited to wear and handle helmets and mail armour, to the delight of children (and their dads)!
