Castello Estense

In 1385 a dangerous revolt convinced Marquis Niccolò II of the need to set up a powerful suppression mechanism to protect the Este lords: this was how Castello di San Michele came into being.
A century later, the castle became the magnificent residence of the Este court, and was accordingly embellished with grand roof terraces atop the towers, fine marble balconies and splendid apartments, which can still be visited today on a tour of the castle.
