A dream called a castle

authentic emotions, immersed in history

The San Salvatore Castle is one of the most sumptuous and iconic late medieval fortifications in Europe, where time seems to have stopped. You tread a romantic cobblestone leading to the imposing North Gate, passing through the hamlet between crenellated walls and armoured towers, and after crossing the intriguing drawbridge, you finally enter the heart of the castle. Moving uphill, you gradually leave behind the preoccupations of daily life, overwhelmed by the silence and the extraordinary panorama that opens to reveal a unique, unmatchable atmosphere. Here, among the fascinating medieval ruins of the Ottaviano Palace and the Palaces of the Counts, the terraces march out into sublime beauty, the magnificent Palazzo Odoardo rises up, and ... you can breathe in the air of centuries past!
