Until few years ago the castle belonged to the family Thun, but nowadays it belongs to the Autonomous Province of Trent. The castle lies on a hill and distinguishes for its imposing walls, the corner towers and the moat with the drawbridge. Partly visitable.
Lucky people who can admire from above Castel Thun, in Vigo di Ton, can better describe its imposing shape with the walls 20 m tall, spaced out by heavy square towers. The castle had been residence of one of the nobles families in the area.
The actual shape of the palace is dated back to the XVI century, when the original medieval building was restored. The castle counts 150 rooms, to say nothing about the vaults and the cellars directly excavated on the stone.
The castle keeps in its rooms wonderful decorations and superb ancient furniture among which there are the "Ladies' Room ", the globe room, the spinet room and the ancestors' room completely covered with family pictures. Saint George chapel still keeps precious frescoes of the first years of the XV century.
Nowadays the castle belongs to the Autonomous Province of Trent and is open to the public.
