"Back in the Middle Ages" Vigoleno by BurgerQueen

The Castle

We arrived to Vigoleno by chance.
While planning a day-trip to Castell'Arquato, a renowned medieval city, and looking for information on the Internet, we found out that the Vigoleno Castle was not far away from our destination, and looked even more interesting!
It was not so easy to find this castle, since it is in an isolated area, but the quest was absolutely worhy: simply by standing in front of the castle entrance, we felt like being in the past of our Country.

The area

With great surprise, we found out that the area is rich in similar castles, and just 1h30 away from Milan (by car)!
They are called Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza , and some of them look great, even if Vigoleno seems to be the best!
We are now planning to visit some of them, come back to my page in the future for further info and pictures!
