The Gradara Castle in Italy is one of the most interesting attractions to see and discover in the territory between Emilia Romagna and Marches, and precisely if you are spending a weekend in the province of Pesaro e Urbino. This suggestive castle was built between Thirteenth and Fourteenth Century by the De Grifo family. Then the Malatesta family became the owner of the castle, and they built the fortifications and the surrounding wall.
The Gradara Castle in Italy is a very famous place. And there is a special reason: in fact in the halls of this castle took place the story of Paolo and Francesca, the two lovers, a story narrated by Dante in his poem Inferno.
The Gradara Castle is a great and imposing fortress. The halls of the castle are embellished with suggestive frescoes that represent mythology and classic art. In this castle you can also admire the exposition of medieval dresses, music instruments and ancient weapons.
The opening times of the Gradara Castle in Italy: every day (with the exception of December 25 and January 1) from 8:30am to 6:30pm (on Monday from 8:30am to 1:00pm).
