______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This ancient mano-house from the XI century, although refurbished several times, can be found in Vezio, a hamlet of Perledo, medieval village.

Today the castle appears as a square based fortification with tall walls and a central tower accessible from a functioning drawbridge.It was part of the fortification network that often visually connected the castles and watching over the ancient communication routes that ran along the lake and allowed access to the valleys.

Unique to the castle is the presence of trained birds of prey devoted to their falconer, who entertain the public with spectacular demonstrations.

Open from the middle of March to November from 10.00 am to sunset.

Closed in event of bad weather
