Built during the 13th and 17th century, this castle is known for the many legends and tragic love stories that took place within its walls. The castle's architecture is a combination of VENETIAN, GERMAN and LOMBARD CULTURES which is typical of this area that was at the border of the Prince-Bishopric of Trento. This large 5 storey, 13th century tower house was built by the Cagnò family in 1464 and then given to the THUN FAMILY. During the 19th century it was bought by a local family and today it is owned by the Autonomous Province of Trento that restored the castle and turned into a prestigious venue for temporary exhibits and cultural events. The inside of the castle is quite fascinating with vaulted ceilings, wooden interiors and frescoes in the various rooms and halls where the legend concerning the imprisonment of the unfortunate Countess Marianna Elisabetta Thun took place.
