Castello di Cremolino

Cremolino castle stands in a dominating position: situated on a rocky spur, it overlooks the village, and its massive 15th-century tower can be seen from afar, being at some 450m above sea level the highest castle in Southern Monferrato. Built by the Marquis Tommaso Malaspina at the end of the 13th century, a triple circle of walls was added in the following centuries making it virtually impregnable allowing it to maintain its character of a medieval fortress accessed by a characteristic drawbridge. From the mid-1500s it became the stately residence of the Doria and then the Serra families and is currently lived in by the owners who give guided tours. From the terraces, it is possible to see one of the most beautiful views of Southern Monferrato and of the Alps, including Monviso, Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa, as well as fourteen of the almost 30 castles in the area.
