The castle, from the top of the town, dominates the famous UNESCO heritage vineyards
The castles of the Langa of Barolo
Ancient noble residences and castles that for years defended prestigious territory
Landscapes, vineyards, villages, culture and food and wine
The small village of Serralunga is built around its castle which rises at the top of the hill.
The imposing medieval castle dominates the surrounding landscape and its characteristic profile draws the eye from afar.
For many centuries the castle has controlled the territory that surrounds it and has observed and protected the work of people in the vineyards.
The orderly and luxuriant vineyards, from which Barolo wine is born, create the unmistakable landscape that UNESCO, in 2014, includes in its list of world heritage list.
Just in front of Serralunga, at the top of another hill, is Castiglione Falletto and its castle with its characteristic round tower.
Here too, vineyards surround the village and the area is dotted with wineries that produce excellent Barolo wines.
Climbing a few hills you arrive in Barolo, the small town from which the most prestigious of wines takes its name.
Here, in the cellars of the castle, Barolo was born.
