Caldes Castle

Recently restored, the castle is located at the entrance to Val di Sole

  • Owned by the Autonomous Province of Trento
  • New exibition 'Church, Empire and Turquerie. Giuseppe Alberti, painter and architect of the Trentino Baroque Movement'
  • The stube del conte and the room where Olinda was kept prisoner

Constructed in the 13th century, legend has it that this Gothic-style castle was used as a prison for the noblewoman Olinda, for the crime of falling in love with a minstrel. Initially intended to maintain control over the valley, along with the Rocca di Samoclevo which overlooks it, the manor was acquired by the Thun family in 1464.

The most recent changes to the structure date back to the sixteenth century and include the construction of a chapel dedicated to the Nativity of Mary, decorated with frescoes by the painter Elia Naurizio. Today, the building is part of the Buonconsiglio network of castles and is home to period furniture, works of art, and the stube del conte or Count’s Parlour, recently restored to its ancient splendour. The castle is open in summer and hosts cultural events, exhibitions, performances, concerts, guided tours and workshops for families.
