Malingri Castle

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Malingri di Bagnolo Castle is a feudal complex and it has been the residence of the Malingri family since 1400; it is surrounded by three city walls and 123 acres of centuries-old woods, vineyards, farmhouses, and stone mills dating back to 1400s and 1600s.

Among its most interesting features, there’s the closed courtyard, decorated in the centre by a well surrounded by mulberry trees – a testament to the times when silkworms used to be an important economic asset; then, there are the XV century frescoes on the main façade, the XV century chapel of Saint Sebastian (with the Passion of Christ), as well as the patrol guard paths, with decorations made in the 1200s. Today, the castle is part of the “Grandi Giardini Italiani” circuit.

The park

The castle is surrounded by a large English park, created on the previous XVII century garden. Countless large trees grow in it, including a majestic Liriodedendron tulipifera , evergreen hedges, flowering shrubs, collections of acidophilic plants, rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and, above all, hydrangeas: numberless varieties ranging from blue to deep blue, white, and red (like Hydrangea macropylla “Merveille Sanguine Brunette” and “Nigra Preziosa”).

A stream surrounded by bamboo groves and a wonderful gallery of centuries-old hornbeams ( Carpinus betulus ) are also worth mentioning.
