THE DAILY PICTURE.IL CASTELLO DI BROLIO: BROLIO CASTLE


“IL CASTELLO DI BROLIO” is an imposing castle of Longobard origin located in the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti, Siena.
The castle, since 1141, belongs to the florentine family Ricasoli.
A famous member of the family was Bettino Ricasoli, known as “the iron Baron”, who personally took care of the castle since 1829 giving it its present appearance.
However, given the historic rivalry between Florence and Siena, the castle was attacked and rebuilt several times, becoming a fusion of different historical styles that give it a special charm.
