Where your dreams come true...

For information write to

Castello dei Solaro is a historical residence of the XIII century, built by the Princes of Acaja and serving as a military outpost against the powerful Marquisate of Saluzzo. It is an authentic medieval fortress which still upholds its grand and majestic aspect: crossing the drawbridge on the trench will soon make you feel protected. The Castle got a new lease on life when it was acquired by the Solaro Counts. Countess Eufrasia ordered a renovation, both of the park and the mansion, which, together with the noblewoman’s thirst for knowledge, contributed to the transformation of the Castle from mere medieval stronghold, into an authentic cultural parlor. It does not come as a surprise, then, that Silvio Pellico chose the castle to read a preview of The My Prisons to a selected audience.
