Toblino Castle

Calavino, Italy

Toblino is one of the most famous castles in Trentino. It owes its fame to a unique location and the beautiful environment that surrounds it, but also to the many dark legends that found a fertile ground to originate and grow in that park and among those walls. The structure is built on a small peninsula of Lake Toblino.

Since the 1100s the castle was owned by the vassals of Prince Bishop of Trento, but has changed hands several times. In 1848 it was besieged by the volunteer corps of Lombardian army.

The present appearance of Toblino castle, that is now an elegant restaurant, is the result of a reconstruction ordered by Bernardo Cles in the 16th century.

Wow what an amazing venue, staff and the food I don't think the words can describe. I highly recommend the beef. We came with a dog and the was no problem. The two gentlemen that looked after us were very professional and made us feel welcome from the very first moment. I highly recommend to visit!

Manarola is a small town, a frazione of the comune of Riomaggiore. It is the second-smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists, with a population of 353.

Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The local dialect is Manarolese, which is marginally different from the dialects in the nearby area. The name 'Manarola' is probably a dialectical evolution of the Latin, 'magna rota'. In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to 'magna roea' which means 'large wheel', in reference to the mill wheel in the town.

Manarola's primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetrà, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region.
