Macchiaroli Castle

Teggiano, Italy

The Macchiaroli Castle is located in the ancient city of Teggiano at the center of the Valley of Diano in the province of Salerno. Built in Norman times, it is among the most important sites in Southern Italy. Belonging to the Princes of Sanseverino, the Castle has been the center of important historical events, including the conspiracy of the barons in 1485. Over the course of centuries the Castle has changed roles, from a medieval, war-torn fortress to a tranquil residence, and ownerships until 1860 when the monumental structure was purchased by the Macchiaroli family.

Today, after the completion of an important restoration including its ancient walkways of war, the majesty of its towers and the removing architectural barriers, the Castle is appointed with elegant and refined furnishings making it an ideal venue for weddings and parties. Its spacious indoor and outdoor locations are ideal for concerts, theatrical events, conventions, conferences, and cultural events.

Both the castle and the town are very nice, it is a suitable place for those who want to switch off and recharge their batteries. The "le dungeon" room is very characteristic, having a mini-apartment in a castle is priceless! The owner Gisella very kind and helpful, we were greeted by her collaborator Anna who proved to be an excellent guide, she made us visit the castle, the view that the towers offer is wonderful

This was the first time to Teggiano, but our family will definitely return. The Castello Macchiaroli is stunning and the history of the castle brings you back to the medieval times. The owners have taken care to renovate over the years to restore the castle back to its glory and they've done a magnificent job. The Suites are perfectly appointed and very comfortable. Although I wasn't there for a specific event, I can't imagine a more beautiful place for a special event. We were taken on a tour of the Castle and saw the event space. It too is gorgeous! The staff are so welcoming and no detail was left out. I give this an easy 5+ rating.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
