One more medieval castle, without unique characteristics or history
Sep 2018 • Couples
Roddi is a very small community, about half way between Alba and Verduno. There is a reasonable restaurant and a winery or two, as well as a medieval castle. In this it resembles dozens of other small towns in the Piemonte. The Castle of Roddi is another medieval fortress, with high, thick walls, even higher cylindrical towers, with small windows and clearly designed to allow the defenders to shoot arrows from the inside, while being protected from projectiles, large and small, coming from the outside. Designed around the fifteenth century, it was preceded by other castles at the site, dating back to the 12th century. While the walls are largely intact, the drawbridge is no longer in existence. Inside the castle, cofferd ceilings and remnants of what must have been interesting frescoes can be observed. In other areas, modern weapons, inconsistent with the castle's age are displayed. Today, only part of the castle is open to visitors. There are plans to restore the castle and convert it into a school of cooking, but who knows when those plans will materialize.

Nice little castello
Oct 2015 • Couples
This is probably the least known castello in the area but it's a very nice spot to visit. The staff is super friendly and offers a free tour through the building. The view of the surrounding hills is stunning and the castello itself offers some nice little details although some of the rooms would benefit from a restoration.

Overall definitely worth a visit
