Pergine Castle

The imposing Pergine Castle dominates the upper Valsugana and the Caldonazzo lake. Built in the thirteenth century, it belonged to the dukes of Austria under the reign of Margarete Maultasch and later Emperor Maximilian I. The complex is divided into two city walls: the medieval defense posts, such as the keep and the towers, and the Renaissance buildings residential. The imposing octagonal pillar supporting a vaulted ceiling in the entrance hall is original from the historical and architectural point of view. Interesting are the Drop Prison, the Chimney Room, known for popular fantasies on the appearance of a mysterious white lady, the Throne Room and the Chapel of St. Andrew on the first floor. The five rooms on the second floor and the garden host exhibitions.
