The fortress, built in 1200, manifests its mysterious charm through its severe aspect and imposing solidity. Kings, princes, soldiers, architects and military engineers visited: here lived Emperor Carlo V, Francesco I the King of France, Lucrezia Borgia daughter of Pope Alessandro VI, Napoleon I, Garibaldi and other illustrious men. In the following centuries reigned the Boiardos, Gonzagas, Viscontis, and Estensi; the French; Murat's Napoleonic troops and after the Vienna Congress the Austro-Hungarian government. Today four ramparts remain and on the south east side the Osteria del Viandante rises. Spacious frescoed dining rooms welcome the guests in an elegant and warm atmosphere. The beautiful terrace on the ancient fortress ramparts becomes a charming and romantic spot in the summer.
