Romano Castle

Description

Romano Castle has got a moat (though dried now), a lift bridge, a square plan, high walls and corner towers.

It was probably built almost nine hundred years ago, but was gradually modified over the time, up to the XVIII Century. The current structure allow us to spot the different styles and owners of the castle, for instance, the battlements are mixed, both dovetailed (a Ghibelline feature) and squared, typical of the Guelph’s castles: this means that the castle was disputed between the warring parties.

Its walls show the classic Po Valley tradition, with the typical red bricks we can admire in almost every fortress of that time all over our territory.

We also recommend you to visit the refined internal courtyard, decorated with the Venice Republic symbols.
