Castel Valer introduction go to the picture gallery of Castel Valer

The Valer Castle is situated in the Non Valley (Val di Non) in the province Trent (Trento) in the Welsch Tyrol (Italy) at the foothills of the Dolomite Alps. The building consists of 2 connected castles and was built on the foundations of a Roman castle – as was discovered thanks to various finds – between the 12th and 17th century. The historic Roman road (from Rome to Gaul) passed the castle, which served as a place of surveillance along the Roman road as well as a base to pass on light signals. more details ……

The historic Roman road (from Rome to Gaul) passed the castle, which served as a place of surveillance along the Roman road as well as a base to pass on light signals.

The present octagonal tower (unique in the old area) was erected in the 12th century. It is 40 meters high and consists mainly of granite. In the lower part, the walls are approximately 3 meters thick. The only access to the tower is an old wooden bridge, which the inhabitants – after having withdrawn into the tower – could destroy in case of occupation. According to legend, an underground corridor led to the nearest castle. In the course of centuries, extensive buildings were built around the tower. A stone bridge, formerly a drawbridge, and a large gate give access into the inner castle grounds. more details ……

Within the castle grounds, there are two castle yards which are connected with a small lane. One of them features an interesting Romanesque pillar, an expansive arch and two triforia, and an armorial hall above with an impressive cloister of pillars, which was created in the time of the Council of Trent (1545-1563). The other yard features extensive vaults and includes the judge’s seat, which was the center of jurisdiction on the right side of the Non Valley. Several staircases lead to the living quarters on top of the vaults, which include two large halls (one Great Hall). more details ……

The Great Hall of approx. 120m2 features important pillared windows and a magnificent wooden ceiling. Adjacent to the Great Hall are the Madrutz rooms, named after Cardinal Madrutz, who played a major role during the Council of Trent and used to live in these rooms. The rooms feature outstanding frescoes from the 16th century, created by the famous painter Marcello Fogolini from Vicenza, who had to flee his home town because he had murdered his barber. As the jurisdiction in Valer allowed sanctuary for murderers, he was employed to paint the famous Angel Frieze. more details ……

Tile stoves and fireplaces go to the picture gallery of Castel Valer

16 old and very interesting tiled stoves (16th – 18th century) and three fireplaces can be found in the various rooms of the castle. They have all been restored and are fully functional. On the south side of the castle, there are the newly established garden grounds, spreading over several terraces with unique and beautiful views over the southern Non Valley and the Brenta Group (foothills of the Dolomite Alps). On the east side, there is the castle garden used for growing vegetables and cut flowers. Over the last 20 years, the entire castle complex has been restored.

Most ceiling constructions have been renovated, whereby the old and intact wooden constructions could be reinstalled. If necessary, the roof tiles have been replaced by handmade, antique crown tiles. The castle is now equipped with two new heating systems (woodchips or pellets and oil) which can change automatically. more details ……
