GA5004 - "CASTELLO DEL BORGO" - VALSAMOGGIA, BOLOGNA HILLSThe fortified village still retains its ancient charm thanks to the perfectly preserved medieval entrance, the fortress dating back to 1523 and the splendid 18th century Palazzo Fossati. Built on the border between Modena and Bologna, it was erected to defend Ravenna against the barbarians and rebuilt in the Middle Ages on Roman foundations after the destruction wrought by the Lombards. Until the end of the 19th century, it was owned by the Boccadiferro family, who hosted illustrious figures such as Charlemagne, who was on his way to Rome for his coronation, while until 1109 it was the feud of Matilde di Canossa, who fought between the Ghibelline Modena and the Guelph Bologna. Among the colorful notes linked to the castle we remember the musical opera dedicated to it: "love and death" and the legends about the ghosts of the wives of the cruel Boccadiferro.The castle is easily accessible from both Bologna (35 km) and Modena (31 km) and has been preserved and maintained over time with constant restoration. Positioned 320 meters above sea level, it dominates the vineyards and a landscape that for its beauty is a destination for hikers who walk the paths behind the village and golf lovers, who have an 18-hole course just 5 km away.Palazzo Fossati is developed on three habitable levels in addition to the basement that connects with secret passages to the watchtower. The fortress, however, has four levels from which you can access from external walkways that run along the walls. The property is enriched by a hanging garden planted with ash trees and a horse chestnut tree and bordered by a wall of bricks and stone. The park of the castle, of more than 10,000 square meters, occupies what was once the moat. The castle and its gardens are undoubtedly an evocative location of value that lends itself perfectly to the organization of elegant and refined events.Surfaces:- Palace: mq. 1100- Tower: 285 square meters- Keeper's house: 213 square meters- Garden and park: 14.800 square meters
