Visit to the Matildic Castles

Lived between the 11th and 12th centuries, a period characterised by continuous battles, intrigues and excommunications, the Grancontessa Matilde di Canossa is one of the most important and interesting figures of the Italian Middle Ages: she was able to demonstrate extraordinary strength, enduring even great pain and humiliation, showing an innate aptitude for leadership.

The Borgo Vercallo Relais stands in her lands, still rich in her past and history thanks to the mighty fortified system of castles that defended the vast feudal state she governed.

In fact, a few kilometres from the Relais you can visit some of its most important castles.
