On the last Sunday of the year, December 29th, and on Epiphany, guided afternoon visits to Castile provide for a sweet end. After having highlighted events and curiosities in the long history of the fortress, built in 1270 and the object of transformations and changes over the centuries to follow, the guide will accompany the participants on the walkways to admire the suggestive surrounding landscape. Visits will end at the La Castiglia café-restaurant to enjoy panettone accompanied by eggnog, a typical Piedmontese delight prepared by chef Luca Banchio, the restaurant’s owner. Visits will start at 15.30 and 16.30 from the ticket office in Castile. It is advisable to book. The cost is 5 euros per person, 2 euros for children under 12 accompanied.
