Categories , ,

The castle of courtly love in the land of Saluzzo.

An enchanting castle silhouetted against the backdrop of the Cuneo Alps, first inhabited by Valerano, the Lord of the Marquisate of Saluzzo. Among the medieval era interiors, the salon stands out. A baronial setting where one of the most awe-inspiring examples of 15th century painting is to be found, with mythical heroes dressed as knights and heroines as ladies-ofthe- court by the fountain of eternal youth.

Donated by Elisabetta De Rege Provana – 1985
