Guided Tour

castel baradello

Symbol of the city of Como, the “stone sentinel” erected for the defense of Como, Baradello Castle is clearly visible to anyone approaching the city.

The Castle is located in a significant strategic point. From the top of the Tower you can enjoy a truly breathtaking view: from Switzerland to Milan, from Monte Rosa to Resegone. A unique 360 degree view of the lake, the Alps and the entire Po Plain.

The Baradello castle is a scenic and easy stroll away from different parts of the city. In a couple minutes and with a bit of walking, you can reach a place that naturally submerges you in history, greenery and the soul of our area.
2021, with the new relaxation of restrictions, brings new events, managed by Slow Lake Como:

  • A calendar of ongoing and regular events:
  • A visit to the castle with yoga and Sun Salutation lessons every first Saturday of the month;
  • Playful and educational workshops proposed for children every second Saturday of the month
  • Food-tasting tours featuring products of the region, organized in collaboration with local agricultural businesses.

In a year strongly marked by Covid and restrictions, the Baradello Castle is opening to the public again, a sign of hope for the future. The openings will be: every Friday evening, every Saturday, Sundays and holidays, as well as any other day upon request.
