Castel Nanno is not far from the village of the same name in Val di Non. Its unique shape, with a central turret, seems to depict the peaks of the Brenta Dolomites that frame it, almost protecting it. Elegant in its forms and austere in its height, it rises on a hill that makes it clearly visible from everywhere. Just a short distance from Castel Valer, it was already mentioned in a document in 1191. The ancient manor building, wanted by the Lords of Enno, which became more refined over the years, must have been very unsophisticated and severe. Castel Nanno is a treasure trove of fascinating stories and legends that recount, over time, the vicissitudes of the territory and of the families that owned it. The lovers – Melisenda and Ludovico – or witches who were burned alive, are some of the impressive stories that form the backdrop of the history of a castle that has survived through the centuries.

Privately owned, Castel Nanno is open to visitors, who are accompanied by a tour guide, from April to November.

Once you have purchased your tickets, the staff will show you where to park near the castle (if there are people in your group who have disability or walking problems) or you can leave your car at the nearby municipal depot (pink complex) in via Enrico Bergamo 38, a 5-minute walk from the castle.
