This castle is beautiful, interesting, beautifully immersed in the green, the personnel who are always friendly with customers, here is the ghost The brothers cavalcabo 'with Carlo who was cremona and Eleonora viritelli. Highly recommended.
Domenico Dattola (5 years ago)
The castle is very beautiful but can be visited only from the outside because it is privately owned. There are many legends and beliefs handed down for centuries to this day and which have given everything an ancient manor in an aura of mystery.

Esternamente bello. Chiuso al pubblico.

Purtroppo è residenza privata, visto solo l'esterno, perfettamente conservato. Il piccolo borgo con la chiesa sono carini. Si dice sia il meno abitato della provincia di Lodi..

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
