Castelforte Castle


The castle ruins of Festenstein can be descirbed as Andriano's symbol. It reigns over Andriano from the lofty, rocky outcrop of the Gola del Rio Gaida, Its location was certainly a pondered chioce by the stonemason to ensure the weapns of the enemies would never reach the castle. At the same time, the spectacular lcation of the castle offers a 360° view across the lower Valle dell'Adige. Festenstein was first mentioned in written documente in the mid- 13th century. In 2008, Count Meinhard Khuen Belasi purchased teh castle ruins and commissioned, together with the South Tyralean Office for Cultural Heritage, various restoration measures to secure the state of the walls and protect the caste from further dererioration.
Festenstein can only be reached via a steep montain climb.
