A medieval castle set in Turin’s green haven
One of the oldest parks in Turin, along the banks of the river Po, where you can enjoy the fresh air, a stroll outdoors or cycle far from the bustle of the city. The park boasts a remarkable floral and arboreal heritage, with about 1,800 tall trees, and a wealth of bird life with many species of local birds that are well adapted to the river habitat, including herons and mallards. Here you will find more than just nature. Inside the green area there is the Medieval Village created to enhance and promote the ancient historical and cultural traditions of Piedmont as well as the houses, streets and statues including those dedicated to Massimo D'Azeglio and Cesare Battisti, fountains such as the Fontana dei Dodici Mesi with a large Rococo-style fountain pool, and the characteristic Rock Garden with its paved streets, streams and water features. You can stop off at one of the many bars and clubs or take the ferryboat to cruise along the Po. There are also several initiatives, events and entertainment shows held in the park.
