Middle age nooks

The gate-tower and the fortress: the ancient heart of our castle, built between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and now a place of evocative beauty. Bricks and pebbles carefully laid in a herringbone pattern, ceramic basins of Spanish origin adorn the mullioned windows, and a few touches of lime plaster embellish the warm terracotta tones. These walls witnessed the rise of the lineage of the Lords of Buronzo, and today, with the romantic ruins of the fortress, they remind us of both the sophistication of castle life in the fourteenth century, and the clamour of battles and sieges from the times that were to follow.
