A road leads from one point to another. The Castle Road connects castles and chateaux, which are much more than points, because each house holds within its walls one of the greatest secrets, that of time. This region is one of the richest in castles and palaces in Europe, it is a living witness of great epochs.

The offer of the Castles Route does not only include the invitation to explore the variety of houses, but is rather a personal recommendation for the peculiarities of the surroundings. Each place along the Castle Road contributes with its historical, architectural and epicurean peculiarities to make the region a land before our time in our time.

From the strong foundation of a grown tradition, to places of dreams and places of pleasure. This is the Castle Road and its partners.
