Culture & History



Fascinating mix of periods and styles, this great fortress is one of the oldest and largest castles in Europe.

The CastelBrando museum is a true history keeper, allowing you to take a trip back in time, by visiting different areas of the museum, painting exhibitions and more.

To visit the castle is like plunging into a gripping journey through history that develops through the majestic entrance staircase, the XVIII c. noble rooms and the XVI c. hall, also known as the "Hall of Emblems," the museum areas, terraces and gardens, which overlook the enchanting valley.


History



The roots of CastelBrando date back 2000 years and represent an open page on the history of this territory and people, leaders and famous people, who made heroic deeds.

Inhabited since prehistoric times, the first castrum was built during the Roman era, as a defense and control structure of the Imperial Via Claudia Augusta, which connected the Adriatic to the north of Europe.

Over the centuries, the castle went through series of extensions: became the home of the Da Camino family, which completely encircled the imposing battlements of the Guelph and built a central tower, then passed under the control of the Republic of Venice, who gave it as feud first to Marin Faliero and then, for merit-at-arms, to the captains of fortune Giovanni Brandolino and Erasmo da Narni, better known as the Gattamelata.

In the sixteenth century, under the Brandolini family, who more than others marked the history and character of the estate, the castle was extended in its central part with a Sansovinian touch, acquiring a Venetian elegance.

The latest to be built is the eighteenth-century horseshoe-shaped structure designed by Ottavio Scotti of Treviso, an imposing and linear structure, of rigorous classicism.

The castle remained the property of the Conti Brandolini until 1959, when it was sold to the Salesian Fathers, who turned it for use as a center for spiritual studies.

In 1997 CastelBrando was bought and completely restored by Quaternario Investimenti Spa, which brought back to it the charm of its glorious days.


Weddingd & Celebration



With the magic that makes a romantic candlelit dinner so special, a private banquet so cheerful, an important business lunch so favorable, CastelBrando can become the perfect setting for your special moments in its sumptuous dining rooms.

Inside the splendid rooms of the castle there is a convention and events center consisting of 3 theatres and 7 halls: the historical Teatro Sansovino (200 sqm.), the Great Theatre (550 sqm.), the Teatro Tenda (1,000 sqm.) and the halls of the eighteenth century (50/80 sqm. each).
