Castel Caldes

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 large five-floor tower house from the 13th century was donated to the Thun family, who incorporated it into a new square building, the current castle.

The inside is fascinating, with vaulted ceilings, wood panelling and frescoed rooms.  Quite remarkable are the count’s room and the ballroom.  After climbing the tower’s wooden staircase, you enter a room with frescoes all over the walls, telling ancient stories about the imprisonment of the unfortunate young countess Marianna Elisabetta Thun. Legend has it that the frescoes in the small room, known as Olinda’s prison, are her own work.

The Castle belongs to the Autonomous Province of Trento, that restored it and turned it into a prestigious venue for exhibitions and cultural events.
