CASTELLO DI GOVONE:

CASTELLO DI BAROLO:
Barolo has, in fact, not one castle but two, the Castello Falletti (the communal castle) and the Castello della Volta. The first is located in the city centre, the second, a few hundred metres away as the crow flies, on the ridge that runs from Novello to La Morra, by way of Vergne. The two castles, in fact, face each other, and both belonged to the Falletti family. The position of the Castello alla Volta gave it the more strategic importance.
In Castello Falletti nowadays you can visit the REgional Museum of Barolo wine "WIMU" and the historical library founded by Silvio Pellico.
