CASTELLO DI MONTALERO
During your vacation, you will stay at the historic Castello di Montalero, in the heart of the Monferrato region. Castello di Montalero is a beautiful building with much history going back to the 13th century, although the present building was constructed on the old castle foundations around 1720.
The castello was originally built for the Marquis di Casale, Teodore II Paleologo in 1388 whose family ruled the fiefdom of, what was then Mons Laurus, becoming Montalerius and nowadays Montalero, until 1634. Through marriage, the castello and its estate passed through the Mazzetti family who, in 1656, successfully defended the castello from an attack by troops of the Duke of Modena, in the pay of the French, during many local feuds and minor wars of that period.
