The complex is set into the green hillside landscape of the lower Val Lagarina.

The large castle complex, one of the most evocative in the Trentino region, seems to settle into the hill landscape and trace its undulating outlines with impressive walls, five towers, the baronial palace and the imposing keep. The guardhouse, set apart in a green area, is home to an extraordinary cycle of 1300s frescoes with war scenes. Nor is the Hall of Love any less impressive, in the keep, with elegant decorations in the "courtly" style. Famous guests have stayed in this keep: Longobard King Autari, with his wife Teodolinda, Emperors Charles Carlo V and Maximillian Hapsburg.
