The Castle Of Serralunga D Alba
The castle of Serralunga d'Alba, in the province of Cuneo, is widely considered one of the best preserved examples of fourteenth-century aristocratic castle in Piedmont. Slim and stately, indelible symbol of this landscape, overlooking one of the most beautiful and untouched of the Langhe, surrounded by hills of great wines. It is considered one of the best preserved examples of fourteenth-century aristocratic castle in Piedmont, and is unique in Italy for its architectural structure, typical of a French donjon. The castle has had very few alterations over time, in fact the building has suffered major feats of arms and was never transformed into holiday home, thus keeping unchanged the structure of a medieval fortress. The castle held, rather than a military role, a function of the local production control, as evidenced by its very structure, extremely slender and tense to emphasize in this way the prestige of the Falletti family. Inside, a few very large fireplaces and wooden ceilings are the only evidence remaining of the original furnishings.
