A romantic triumph of elegance
With a history going back seven centuries, involving dukes, princes and kings, the Castle of Agliè, formerly belonging to the marquises of San Martino, has an ancient and noble past, as can be seen by the variety of decor that still features in apartments and gardens.
Surrounded by a park with ancient trees and vast glasshouses, the castle has over 300 rooms, containing a legacy of furniture and precious, eclectic collections ranging from paintings to archaeological finds and through to surprising ornithological and oriental collections.
The frescoed Ballroom and the series of perfectly preserved period rooms make this castle a triumph of elegance and splendour.
