Castle of Montorio

3 km away from Verona’s walls, this castle was presumably a look-out post which was once part of the city fortifications and which is first mentioned in documents dating back to 995 A.D.

Only certain sections of the structure remain, as four of the seven towers were demolished (as well as parts of the walls) by  the Austrians in 1820.

The castle now serves as a backdrop for cultural events held in the summer.
