Visit the castle. Feb 17, 2018
Castello del Buonconsiglio is surely the main sight of Trento.

It is made of three buildings. Inside there are many rooms to visit. The castle has some towers and two gardens.

The ancient part of the castle named Castelvecchio was built between XIII and XV centuries. Its courtyard is decorated with beautiful frescoes. Another part of the castle is Magno Palazzo; built between 1528 and 1536. Giunta Albertiana is the smaller part of the complex. It is a 17th century building and stands in the middle of the two palaces.

One of the most important features of the castle is the "Ciclo dei Mesi" (cycle of the months). This is a group of 11 frescoes painted around 1400 that shows the activities of the nobles and the working class at the end of the Middle Ages; month after month. One of the frescoes is missing because of fire. These frescoes are housed inside Torre Aquila (tower of the eagle). Before entering this tower you are given a tool to listen to the story of this paintings in various languages.

A must in Trento Jun 15, 2010
This magnificent castle was the official residence of Trento's aristocracy for many years. Used as a prison and as a shooting fortress, its history spans now more than 7 centuries.

You can visit many of its art galleries and enjoy a view of the wonderful frescos on the Castle's walls. They also have temporary exhibitions, in this case they had one about Egypt.

One of the main activities is a visit to the Torre Aquila, where you can admire medieval paintings on the walls.

For those who get hungry after the visit, there is a wonderful restaurant in the facilities.

English audio is available for some of the rooms.
