Planted firmly on the last rock spur of the Carso high above the Gulf of Trieste, this Castle is residence of a princely family. The Castle boasts artistic masterpieces and rare historical relics. And, overlooking vast horizons of the sea are its gardens, with their romantic avenues embelished with period statues and objects and panoramic terraces. The owners have decided to open gardens and most of their Castle home to the public tours, conferences, art exhibitions, concerts, gala dinners and other events.
Set out on a number of levels, the gardens display multi-coloured beds and cascades of all type of flowers, forming attractive splashes of colours of the classical Mediterranean vegetation.
The Castle itself is a solid composite construction dominated by a 16th-century tower which holds infacts a structure whose origins go back 2000 years, as witnesses by the commemorative stone placed there in the 3rd century to mark a visit by the Emperor Diocletian.
Thanks to its natural setting and the fascination of being an old stately residence and at the same time a living home, the Castle is without doubt among the most attractive castles in Europe. ...
From its clifftop location it overlooks a small fishing village and is surrounded by extensive garden. In its interior, the furnishings, pictures, valuables, collected over centuries bestow a warm, elegant atmosphere on the Castle, while its gardens – with their centuries-old trees, manicured lawns, cascades of flowers and architectural features – are an invitation to relax and enjoy quit walks. A path running through the gardens leads directly to a private beach below.
For years the Castle has been one of the most fascinating locations for gala dinners and high quality events, both for corporate and private parties. The outside and the inside of the building can be rented. A stunning sunset on the Gulf of Trieste, the very elegant atmosphere, the refined service will guarantee a sure success to your events.
You can welcom your guests with a coctail on the bastions on the top of the sea, drink Castle’s wines, have a dinner in the elegant rooms of the Castle or outside in the courtyard and continue the evening in the fascinating Castle’s rooms. It is also possible to pass the “first night” in one of the rooms which hosted illustrious guests.
