Days of castles, palaces and medieval villages 2023: details and upcoming openings

The Days of Castles, Palaces and Medieval Villages is a review that grows from year to year: for 2023, the locations in the plain between Bergamo, Brescia, Cremona and Milan will rise to over 20, which can be accessed together with tourist guides qualified and against the background of many events organized at the same time.

These are extraordinary points of interest, usually not very usable or not open to the public, which for the occasion open their doors wide allowing visitors to catapult themselves into their millenary history, symbol of a prosperous past when our plain represented the border between Duchy of Milan and the Republic of Venice, reason which triggered the birth of numerous fortifications and important architectural, historical and artistic bequests.

The Days of medieval castles, palaces and villages therefore represent an opportunity not to be missed for those who want to go back to the roots of their present, but also simply let themselves be enchanted by the medieval charm that helps make our provinces even more attractive.

The initiative is held every first Sunday of the month, from March to June and from September to December, with the addition of the holidays of April 25, May 1 and June 2. A rich calendar that gives the opportunity to visit all those interested, from families with children to couples, from groups of friends to groups: because the heritage belongs to everyone!
