A beautiful castle. Nov 07, 2017
This castle overlooks the village of Tassullo in the Non valley. In fact, it is situated on a hill.

Probably its name comes from Valerio di Treviri; a saint and bishop whose chapel dedicated to him is housed inside the castle.

This castle was built in 1211; modified and enlarged through the centuries. It belonged to several families. From 1368 it has been continuously inhabited by he Spaur family.

Castle Valer is made of two parts; Castel di Sotto; the lower castle is the older area of this building. Castel di Sopra; the upper castle; is made of buildings dated to the XV century.

The visit to the castle is possible only by a guided tour. It is not possible to take pics inside the castle; even in the courtyard. Unfortunately.

Inside the castle you can visit several rooms. On the first floor of the upper castle you will see a kitchen; and some rooms pannelled with wood. On its second floor your guide will show you a large room (salone degli stemmi) dated to the XV century; a beautiful loggia and other rooms.

As I have already written there is a chapel frescoed in the 1473 in the castle. It is the chapel of saint Valerio. Its inner walls are almost covered with beautiful frescoes painted by two brothers who lived near Bergamo. Giovanni and Battista Baschenis.
