Sorli Castle is a ruined castle that dates back to the 12th century. It is located in the Sorli hamlet near Garbagna in the municipality of Borghetto di Borbera, in the province of Alessandria, at a height of 661 meters.

Absolutely fascinating place half an hour by foot from the road. Not suitable for children due to the presence of precipices. A few more explanatory signs would not hurt, but with the resources of a small municipality it is already a lot that there are a couple of them ...

You can get there with a fairly simple and well-marked path, which from the village crosses a small wood (wonderful in autumn). Today the very high fog made it impossible to see the valley below, but the ruins of the castle are really impressive.

Beautiful viewpoint in the woods between the Val Borbera and the Tortona hills

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
