A large palace overlooking the village

The castle of Agliè is actually more similar to a palace: unlike other manors that once contained the village within their walls, in this case, the houses of the village were located out of the city walls. Originally, the fortress had a defensive function for the inhabitants of the three small villages, Macugnano, Cazzadio e Alladium from which the town of Agliè takes its name. The imposing palace overlooks the central square and it is surrounded by a large park full of secular plants, gardens, and fountains. The three hundred rooms are entirely furnished and decorated with original apparatuses and philological reconstructions, they conserve the art collections of the families who lived in the palace, and today they are admired by many visitors.
