The Bonoris Castle was built between 1891 and 1905 on pre-existing medieval fortress ruins. It is an architectural example of the most important neo-Gothic style of Lombardy. Count Gaetano Bonoris (1861-1923) commissioned the building of the castle for his own house and home. The Municipality of Montichiari acquired it in 1996. The castle is surrounded by a vas tpark and located on the hill of San Pancrazio, scenically overlooking the historic core of the town. The towers and crenellated walls are made with great attention to defensive details: trap doors, retractable gates, moats and drawbridges. The beautiful interior also features rich materials, decorations, frescoes and furnishing. Do not miss the surprise of a secret safe discovered at the death of the Count, who had a wealth of jewels and precious coins.

Beautiful castle overlooking Montichiari. Regrettably it was only open on the weekend and when we visited there was no guide available to take us round. We will have to visit again!

Sadly the Castle is currently only open on Saturdays & Sunday's and it was very disappointing to miss a visit as we were there during the week.

Each room had the most vibrant painted rooms I have ever seen, even beats Egyptian wall paintings although not as old.
