Castell’Arquato (Piacenza)

A walk in the medieval village of Castell'Arquato will allow you to admire dreamlike views and authentic pearls of Medieval history, in an atmosphere suspended between past and present.

Walking through narrow streets and cobbled streets, you will cross the Torrione Farnesiano, the Palazzo del Duca, the former Hospital of Santo Spirito (now home to the Geological Museum), until you reach the scenic square overlooked by the three symbols of the city: the Collegiate Church , symbol of religious power, the Rocca Viscontea , symbol of military power, and the Palazzo del Podestà , symbol of political power.

In addition to the monuments and landscape of the Val D’Arda, the village offers excellent wine tastings , unexpected musical tributes and many opportunities for historical and thematic re-enactments.

It is also included in the Regional Park of Piacenzano , a protected area and rich in sedimentary rock outcrops with an age that varies between 3.5 and 1.8 million years ago.
