Castle of Grinzane Cavour

Built in the middle of the 11th century on top of a hill, the Castle of Grinzane Cavour overlooks, with its beauty and unmistakable architecture, the breathtaking landscape of the Langa hills. Over the centuries, the castle has belonged to various noble Piedmontese families, including the Counts Benso di Cavour, whose most famous exponent was Camillo Benso, a famous hero of the Italian Risorgimento, who lived at the castle and was mayor of the small village of Grinzane. Like a real treasure chest, the castle will be open to offer visitors the precious treasures it holds, as they explore the Museum of the Langhe, the charming historical rooms, the valuable Cavour relics and the Enoteca Regionale Piemontese (the Regional wine shop).
