Castello del Capitano delle Artiglierie
Initially a military facility, the castle provides visitors and guests with spectacular saloons and halls with cofferred wooden roofs, not to mention ceilings enriched with fabulous frescoes by Felice Giani. Taking a trip downstairs, you will discover the Medicean cellars and the inn with its late 18th Century copper stills where you can taste delicious wine and fabulous food specialities from the Tuscan-Romagnolan land.
Today the original military spaces, salt storages and ancient fishery are used for events, conferences and meetings. The large terrace looks over an enormous hanging park, originally a military area in ancient times, supporting the cannon walls. Consisting now of an orchard of “forgotten fruits”, the lucky guests of the castle’s only suite can enjoy the full moonlight as well as spectacular sunsets on Romagna’s rolling hills leading to Florence.
