Castle of Avio

The FAI - Fondo Ambiente Italiano [Italian Environmental Fund] welcomes you to the Vallagarina vineyards

  • The frescoes: Chamber of Eros and Guards Room
  • In summer: activities for kids and families

The Avio castle is run by FAI and participates in its initiatives, such as the FAI Spring and Autumn Days. In summer many activities are organised for families: fun workshops, play routes and special historical re-enactments along the visit route.

The castle consists in a large complex that includes the 11th century stronghold, five towers, the baronial palace and the 13th century walls.

Inside, you can visit the Chamber of Eros, decorated with courtly style frescoes:  a man pierced through the heart by a spear, a lady with a little dog – symbol of fidelity – and Eros blindfolded with bow and arrows. Next to it, the baronial palace remains, the “Picadora” Tower and the Guards House, enriched  by an extraordinary cycle of 14th century frescoes depicting military scenes.
