The history of the castle is inextricably linked with the history of a noble family called Thun.
On a small hill near to the hamlet Vigo di Ton in Val di Non towers the Thun Castle. Built in the middle of the 13th century, it served as the seat of a noble family called Thun, mighty feudal lords which acted on on behalf of the bishop.
Castel Thun is an impressive half civil, half military building, featuring a sophisticated defensive system with strong towers and solid walls. Once you have passed the drawbridge, you will enter a stunning courtyard with 18 stone pillars and two medieval towers. On the other side a fascinating palace is rising, which is the oldest part of the castle.
With its precious furniture, the comprehensive library, the venerable halls and rooms, the collection of arms and the numerous tiled stoves the castle holds a great architectural and historical value. Moreover it boasts a rich green park, also used for organising concerts and other cultural events.
