  • When I arrived in Trento, I visited the Castle of the Good Council. I immediately noticed the location a little high, compared to the city, which allows you to contemplate a beautiful panorama. In the castle I was able to admire paintings, sculptures, majolica stoves, archaeological remains because the beauty of the castle lies precisely in containing different styles: Romanesque, medieval, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance. The castle dates back to the first half of 1200 and was the residence of the princes-bishops of Trento and they have enriched the walls and ceilings of beautiful Baroque and Gothic frescoes. Behind the walled enclosure you can also admire a large garden.
