Castello di Zumelle

Immersed in the green Belluno Pre-Alps, Zumelle Castle rises majestically to guard the valley below, offering visitors a fascinating plunge into the past. Built in the Middle Ages, this castle is one of the best preserved in the Valbelluna and represents a precious historical and architectural testimony.

In the shadow of its mighty walls and the tower soaring skywards, lies a charming medieval village reconstructed with great attention to detail. During events and manifestations, the village comes to life, recreating the atmosphere of times long past: the sound of blacksmiths' hammers, the singing of bakers, and the lively haggling of merchants enliven the streets, while skilful archers practise archery and jesters and musicians entertain the public with their shows.

A visit to Zumelle Castle is an unforgettable experience that lasts about an hour and allows you to explore various historical settings. These include the tower house with the apothecary's shop, the medieval bedroom, the kitchen and banquet hall, the scriptorium, the Church of St. Laurence, the museum area, the military shed, the ancient crypt and the 'arts and crafts' hall. The tour ends in the atmospheric medieval shop, where souvenirs and handicrafts can be purchased. Zumelle Castle also features a medieval-style tavern and inn.

Not far from the castle is the Church of San Donato, one of the oldest in the province, which can be visited on weekends and holidays. A few steps from the castle car park, the wonderful Forest Botanical Garden invites nature lovers to a daily visit, offering an oasis of peace and beauty.

Zumelle Castle is also the ideal starting point for various nature, cultural and food and wine itineraries winding through the UNESCO Dolomites and the UNESCO heritage hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene.

If you are looking for a pure medieval-style place to stay, the Zumelle Castle offers three renovated suites that will make you feel like a real lady and a real castellan.

Come and discover Zumelle Castle, where history lives again and nature enchants. A journey through time that fascinates and inspires, perfect for families, history buffs and nature lovers.
