Bevilacqua Castle (Castello Bevilacqua)
The town of Bevilacqua, about 31 miles from Verona, developed around (and is now mainly known for) the Bevilacqua Castle (Castello Bevilacqua), a fortified castle dating from the 14th century.
A 6th-century fortified settlement was expanded and turned into Castello Bevilacqua (Bevilacqua Castle) by a Venetian count, Guglielmo Bevilacqua. The castle was beautified and turned into a more liveable villa in the 16th century, severely damaged by fire in the late 19th century, and later used as both a school and a home for the elderly. Finally in the 1990s, the castle was acquired by a family that restored it to its 16th-century splendor.
Today, the Castello Bevilacqua is a hotel and a venue for special events - it’s very popular for weddings - including concerts and other performances. There is a beautiful rooftop garden (which dates from the 16th-century design), an on-site restaurant in one of the oldest parts of the castle, and a well-stocked wine cellar.
In addition to the hotel and event spaces, the castle is also home to an armory museum in what was once likely part of the old kitchens, a collection of antique furniture, 18th-century Murano glass chandeliers, some tools like the ones used by scribes in the Middle Ages, and there are many beautiful frescoes on the walls that have been restored.
