Recently restored, the castle is located at the entrance to Val di Sole
The Gothic, severe aspect of Castel Caldes comes from a meeting of different cultures - Venetian, German and Lombard - typical of the border areas of the Prince-Bishopric of Trento.
The castle’s current appearance is the result of architectural work that started in the thirteenth century and continued until the sixteenth. The first part was the five-storey tower. In 1464, the “tower home” was acquired by the Thun family, who enlarged it by also building the chapel dedicated to the Nativity of Mary. Legend has it that the castle was where Olinda was imprisoned in a small room by her father, Rodemondo, to prevent her from marrying Arunte, where she died of a broken heart.
