Overview

The medieval castle overlooking Muggia is a must-see to discover the secrets of this historical monument.  The castle was built at the end of 1300 by Federico di Savorgnan when he occupied the town on behalf of Venice. It was used for military defence until 1700, and then abandoned until 1900 when it became a private abode.

The Bossi family has been living there since 1991 and the Castle and can be visited during the “Muggia Saturdays ” with guided tours to discover the Castle’s hidden niches and admire the architecture and decorations which were conserved and renovated in recent years.

Experience this unique tour which will accompany you back to the past; the passion of the Bossi family in recounting its history will enchant you. This is a family tour to explore every corner of the castle and will offer you the chance to meet the castle’s “inhabitants”and listen to the stories on the castle and its history.

The Bossi family will welcome you in their abode to visit the medieval castle. In 1991 the sculptor Villi Bossi bought the castle in a state of great disrepair and restored it to its ancient splendor. Today it is the private home and studio of the sculptor. The Bossi family now organizes poetry readings and musical evenings so that these walls, once only used for defense, are currently used to safeguard the soul.
