Buonconsiglio Castle

An immersion in history, an absolute must for anyone visiting Trento

The Buonconsiglio Castle is the most important castle in Trentino, residence of the Prince Bishops and symbol of the city of Trento. Today, the castle is also a museum hosting every year some very successful exhibitions.

The Buonconsiglio Castle, splendid residence of the Prince Bishops and symbol of the city of Trento, is made up of different parts built in different ages:  an older one, called Castelvecchio, includes Torre Aquila, with the frescoes of the Cycle of the Months, a masterpiece of Gothic art that takes us to the heart of courtly and peasant life at the end of the 14th century.

Then there is a Renaissance part, the Magno Palazzo, commissioned by the Prince Bishop Bernardo Cles and richly frescoed, while another wing of the palace, the Giunta Albertiana, is from the Baroque age.

During the First World War the trial against the irredentists Cesare Battisti, Fabio Filzi and Damiano Chiesa was held here.

The complex now hosts the Provincial Museum of art, provincial monuments and collections. Every year it proposes a great summer exhibition, together with other smaller ones, accompanied by teaching activities, workshops and learning experiences for schools.
