The castle is in the Garfagnana area of Tuscany. Garfagnana is a national park. It is a mountainous area which is famous for its excellent and inexpensive food. Garfgnana is a beautiful area in northwestern Tuscany, in the province of and to the north of the city of Lucca. The Garfagnana is crossed in its entirety by the Serchio River, which contributes to the lush green valleys you’ll get to experience here. These set the harmonious contrast with the wild mountains that surround the area: to the east/northeast, the Apennines and to the west, the Apuan Alps. These offer visitors plenty of choices among outdoor activities: hiking, walking and mountain biking, in addition to spending time visiting the many enchanting and charming villages and other attractions found in the area. From Castelnuovo Garfagnana to Barga, from the Wind Cave (the Grotta del Vento) to the legendary Devil’s Bridge in Borgo a Mozzano to the ghost town of Vagli di Sotto, there are many places and picturesque villages waiting to to be discovered during your time in the Garfagnana valley in Tuscany.
The castle is located in the village of Silicano, a medieval village with few cars. It is perfectly safe for children to play and explore.
