• Roncolo Castle

    Experience the medieval Tyrollean Art and History visiting this amazing complex

     Roncolo is a mediaeval castle located in the surroundings of Bolzano and on a protected porphyry rock high above the Talvera river at the entrance of Val Sarentino. Castel Roncolo is particularly famous due to its mundane fresco cycle dating back to the Middle Ages. This fresco cycle illustrates authentic knight sagas, literature scenes, court ladies and life on the farm as well as haunting scenes.
    The original complex has been built by the Lords of Wangen in 1237. With the years, the castle has passed through the hands of Bishops, merchants and  noble families. 
    In 1883 the Emperor Franz Joseph received the castle as donation of Archduke John Salvator, who solemnly donated it to the city of Bolzano in 1893.
    Today the castle can be reached in a walk of half an hour and is one of the main attractions of the city of Bolzano. Particularly those who are interested in arts and history are attracted by the castle complex.
