Facing the Monviso mountain cluster, Castello della Manta as it appears today is the result of numerous additions to the original 12th century fortress. It was in the early 15th century that the Castle began to take on its current form: thanks to the works commissioned by the

A fortress from the 12th Century, situated in front of the breath-taking Alpine mountain scenery of the Monviso cluster, Manta Castle strongly evokes a spooky past.
The castle is famous for it's mysterious Gothic frescoes, which have been carefully restored by the Italian Heritage Trust, FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano.

Facing the Monviso mountain cluster, Castello della Manta as it appears today is the result of numerous additions to the original 12th century fortress. It was in the early 15th century that the Castle began to take on its current form: thanks to the works commissioned by the
noble Saluzzo della Manta family, the complex was gradually transformed from a medieval Castle into an aristocratic Palazzo. Internally, the Castle plays host to a series of prestigious rooms. 

In the Baronial Hall there is a valuable cycle of frescoes that represents a rare example of Northern-Italian, late-Gothic secular painting. The depictions of the “Fountain of Youth” immortalize the ancient dream of eternal youth, whereas the “Male and Female Worthies” presumably refer to the leading lights of the House of Saluzzo. 

The castle has been a private property until the donation to the Italian Heritage Trust, FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano, who carefully restored it and opened it to the public. The descendants of the last owner's family still live in a part of the structure.

The castle can be visited individually. Visitors can walk from Manta, passing through the woods, or reach the castle by car. Parking available. 
Especially children love the fairy tale-atmosphere, where they can imagine knights and damsels moving around the halls. While the adults admire the artworks, the children are invited to participate in the special activity FAI Play Family.
You can shop souvenirs, toys, books and guides in the bookshop.
