Little is known about the details of the building or the abandoning of this picturesque Italian hill town, but today is stands empty and slowly decaying. Unfortunately, you can’t get in anymore. It has been completely fenced off. Which just makes it more intrigueing.

Know Before You Go

There are nice views of the old castle and the ruined village from the terrace of the nearby cafe. If you are more active, enjoy the nice (ca 2 hr) walk through the valley, up from Toirano.
