Occupying the whole top of the Cidneo hill, one of Brescia’s main green areas, the castle is the star of the city’s skyline, visible from every angle.

The imposing castle has undergone many renovations which are still visible to this day. Built in the Middle Ages and surviving the Napoleonic era and the Unification of Italy, the castle has been central to the city’s history up until the start of the 20th century, when it was purchased by the municipality and opened to the public.

Inside, a dense maze of alleys and hidden rooms, together with the oldest and finest vineyard instituted inside a city, make it a fascinating place to explore. The castle also houses the Arm Museum Luigi Marzoli and the Museum of the Risorgimento dedicated to the Unification of Italy.
