Castello di Amorosa...

Today we took a tour of an Italian Castle. All of the wood, bricks, stone etc...were imported from different countries throughout Europe. Everything was made like an Italian castle would have been built. It was pretty amazing to say the least... Not to mention our tour guide was intriguing and so into it that you became thrilled by every word... Let me show through a gallery of pictures so you can get a small glimpse of what we saw today...

We enter the Castle

A look at the castle's vineyards
We are about to enter through the gate

The Courtyard

One of the intricate doors

Passing through a hall

Where the archers would keep guard on the castle (about 4"x10")

The banquet hall
The church
One of the wine cellars

One of the wines are aged in these barrels

The candle making room

Another wine cellar

Each of these barrels has aging wine in them

A look at the whole room

The torture chamber
The original "hot seat" (you would sit on the seat and underneath it there would be a fire burning to warm the metal spikes)

A suit of armor

Wine tasting

The bottle of Grape Juice that Isaac, Veronica and I  got to drink while the others wine tasted


  1. That looks amazing...I would love to tour a real castle like that. Looks like you are having a wonderful vacation!


  2. Looks like fun girls...the last time we were all there it was 108 degrees so those wine cellars were that much more enjoyable :)Have Fun thanks for posting!!
