The Medieval Castle at the Valentino Park was built to host the Ancient Art section of the 1884 Turin Expo: along the Po river and surrounded by walls, the richly furnished castle rises above a small cluster of houses and workshop. The buildings and the decorations are faithful copies of 15th century castles as most indications for the furniture and the settings came from the Civic Museum of Ancient Art. Within this great exhibition, that was meant too promote the industrial, technological and bussiness development of the city, the medieval castle was intended as an educational and promotional tool.

Reconstructed medieval village - which houses a mixture of the best dwellings of medieval Piedmonte and Valle d'Aosta. The centrepiece of the village is the Rocca - a 15th century castle (cost for guided tour).

It's funny that the reconstruction itself is now 130 years old, enough to qualify as a historical building itself. We had a walk through the medieval town, great feeling, but could not visit the fortress as it was only by guided tour at fixed hours.

This is a medieval-style village that was built in the late 1800s and it looks really authentic and is set in a beautiful park. Really interesting and worth going.

The survival of this 1884 recreation of a medieval village and castle was a wonderful discovery on the banks of the River Po. It was like stepping back in history.

Around 4 km from the city centre of Turin, is this medieval village that was reconstructed in 1884. Along the Po, you feel in a different age! The guide speaks only Italian, unfortunately, so I had to translate to others, but the visit is very...More

Only saw it from the 'Open Top Bus Tour'. Siuated in what appears to be a very nice park. I believe it is only a reproduction for some exhibition back in the late 19th century.

It was nice quite a lot of people were there shame we were not brave enough for the Tarot Card Reader. A bit small though.

If you are in Torino, you have at least to pay a short visit to the Borgo Medievale, it is a nice reproduction, next to a very nice park, and also a nice walk by the river. Worth it.
