Yup, this is a real medieval castle in the heart of wine country! Check the hours because it is not always open for tours. 3 euros per person and is centrally located between Brisighells's three peaks. take your time then find the path to the clock tower then head down to the city for bruschetta and wine. Can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon.

The fortress, La Rocca Manfrediana, is easiliy accessible by trail or by walking the road from town. In the summer of 2015 I believe it was open only in the morning, Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 12, so plan ahead. Internal exhibitions were at one time planned but seem to have been abandoned (funding?) In any event, the internal stairways, narrow, spiraling, almost claustrophobic for a full-sized adult, are very cool and the views from the outer walls are splendid.
Don't miss the clock tower, which can be accessed by a road walk from the fortress, or separately by a beautiful trail with stone steps directly from town. The views there are magical too, especially down to Brisighella, looking like a perfectly preserved toy medieval village below. The clock tower itself is locked but one can walk around its perimeter and there are terrific views all around.

Brisighella was such a lovely surprise for our stay. It's super photogenic with old people just walking around carrying cool canes and wearing fashionable hats. We spent a good amount of time just photographing the place and eating.

The castle is a nice walk up the side of the mountain and has a pretty remarkable view of the little town and its surrounding area. I love the clock tower on the other side which makes the whole thing seem more guarded and homely.

We never got a chance to go inside the castle, but the whole thing looked pretty cool and is highly recommended for a nice hour or so stroll of exploration.

Which you may very well do if you climb the wrong way.....it is a splendid pile with magnificent views and you can drive almost right to the door. But watch opening times.

The castle can be reached by a scenic footpath that starts in the center of this small town or, if you don't feel like walking, you can go up by car. The entrance to the castle costs only 3 euro... Not much to visit a nice castle with wonderful views, especially when one reaches the top! Going up the stairs is all worth it! A visit is a must if you are in Brisighella!
