Our Locanda hosts in La Morra recommended this day trip to us. A 15th century castle near Saluzzo one of the many in Piemonte. The highlight of this castle is the room of wall painted murals. Excellent restoration work. Absolutely outstanding pictorial murals of the people of the period. Several floors open in a part of the castle, some with furnishings. The kitchen is very interesting. Afterwards we sat in the garden and had a beautiful view of the Alps. Word of caution - I believe the only parking is below the castle and it’s a steep walk up to the entrance. Also Apple maps lead us to a dead end. We found near the cobblestone ramp to the castle entry. If you have time Saluzzo is a beautiful town with a traffic free large piazza.

Like most castles there is a steep climb to the entrance. The castle served both as a fortification and a stately residence but is the latter aspect which is on display. Rooms are adorned with fascinating frescos and painted ceilings. You almost feel as if the original inhabitants had just popped out. It is this “lived in” sensation that makes for a memorable visit. There is a pleasant small garden and a gem of a chapel.

The frescos are wonderful, wonderfully painted figures and animals. For the frescos alone this castle is worth a special detour.

There are some beautiful frescos here, but the written explanation does not provide information on artist or time period. There is also a fee to take photos.

The frescoes at Castello della Manta are definitely worth the trip to see. Mainly a large room with frescoes covering the walls and ceiling. Nice audioguide comes with the admission and does a great job describing in detail what you are looking at. Some other lovely rooms but the main attraction is the frescoes.
