A unique view from the Adige River to the Dolomites
Castel Corno (“Horn”) gets its name from the spur of the cliff on which it stands. Reaching it by foot is an enjoyable conquest!
Just a few minutes from Rovereto, in a strategic location, Castel Corno offers you a unique view, which runs from the flow of the Adige River to the Piccole Dolomiti. Founded around year 1000, it has a structure which perfectly adapts to the territory’s morphology: located on the spur of a cliff, it is divided into an upper and lower castle.
At the heart of weapon facts and legends, the castle was the object of contention and conquest for various noble dynasties and military exploits up to its inexorable decline after the Napoleonic occupation. Property of the Castelcorno family, it first belonged to the Castelbarco family in the 18th century and later to Liechtenstein in 1500. The castle has been managed by the town of Isera since 1928.
Castel Corno is open during the weekends from April to September. You can reach it by taking a 30-minute walk, stopping perhaps in the area for a picnic with a view. Otherwise, take the Line 2 Bus from Rovereto toward Patone/Lenzima.
