Info

Roddi Castle, among all Langhe Castles, is often called the most interesting one on historical and achitectural point of view; laying on the top of the hill it dominates majestically the village. It was property of Gaio Francesco della Mirandola, descendant and grandson of the well-known humanist and philosopher Pico della Mirandola.

The first fortress on the same spot where the castle is nowadays dates back to 11th Century. The present building was probably erected between 13th and 14th Century and it could be a work of the powerful Faletti family. On 1526 the property goes to Mirandola Counts' family and, in 1690, to Chiesa's family. During the Congress of Vienna the Savoy seize the castle and then it will become State property. Finally, in 2001 the property goes to the Municipality of Roddi.

You can partially visit the premises and the International Cooking School of the Alba White Truffle. There is a modern didactic kitchen with full equipment for tourists and cooking classes.
