PIEDMONT: Near Turin, Exquisite 10th century Castle REDUCED TO 4.9 million euro

Nov 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Exceptional Property Offers April 2017

The complex of Castello Canavese is placed in a dominating position of
great importance, very close to an important affluent of the Po river, whose
spring is placed in the Mont Blanc, in the Aosta Valley.

The first news of the castle date back to X century when this fortress was
built by the Celts, whose queen, the priestess Ypa, chose as her own private
residence. In 175 a.C. the consul Appio Claudio transformed it into a small
fort to fight a celtic population, direct descendant of the Allobrogi tribe,
who came down to the Aosta Valley due to a population growth.*

It was in 1316 that was built the actual manor and the house-fort by a
prestigious family from Piedmont, descendant of the mythical Arduino, who in
1002 was erected King of Italy by a group of vassals. This castle housed
important persons and royalty : Vittorio Emanuele II King of Italy, Camillo
Benso of Cavour and the Zar of Russia Nicola II.
