The Castello della Manta lies in the province of Cuneo, which is southern Piemonte. It is one of the few castles in the area that is open most days. The castle is famous for its wall paintings of medieval life. Although much altered over the years it still retains a powerful image as you climb the hill towards it. Once entering the site you are left to roam at will through the astonishing rooms; even down to the huge kitchen with its curved ceilings and whitewashed walls. Remains of extensive parklans still surround the castle, and you may take a picnic outside if you so wish. Good value for money with an excellent guide book.
