The Medieval Castle at the Valentino Park was built to host the Ancient Art section of the 1884 Turin Expo: along the Po river and surrounded by walls, the richly furnished castle rises above a small cluster of houses and workshop. The buildings and the decorations are faithful copies of 15th century castles as most indications for the furniture and the settings came from the Civic Museum of Ancient Art. Within this great exhibition, that was meant too promote the industrial, technological and bussiness development of the city, the medieval castle was intended as an educational and promotional tool.

Only saw it from the 'Open Top Bus Tour'. Siuated in what appears to be a very nice park. I believe it is only a reproduction for some exhibition back in the late 19th century.

It was nice quite a lot of people were there shame we were not brave enough for the Tarot Card Reader. A bit small though.

If you are in Torino, you have at least to pay a short visit to the Borgo Medievale, it is a nice reproduction, next to a very nice park, and also a nice walk by the river. Worth it.

Nice reconstruction of an medieval village. The restaurant is perfect for a lunch break on your stroll along the river Po.

I liked it! Maybe it is not real, but it does give an idea of a medieval village. The castle and gardens is at a cost of 6 euros for a tour of 45 minutes in Italian, the rest is free.
