Castello di Redabue a Masio

Castello di Redabue a Masio

History

The castle’s origins date back to the Middle Ages, probably the 13th century. The feud’s strategic position, controlling the middle valley of the Tanaro River, turned out to be a disadvantage, as the castle faced repeated devastation and destruction over the course of the centuries.

In the 18th century, extensive renovation works restored the building’s original structure. Evidence of its ancient origins can still be seen inside: some arches of tuff alternated with bricks, dated to around the 13th century, as well as the embrasures on the main façade, the cylindrical crenellated tower and a square tower set apart from the main building.

According to records, the feud known as redabo’ was sold to the Scarampi counts in 1445. They kept the property until the end of the 18th century, when ownership passed to the Della Rovere family.

In 1830 the castle was bought by the Doria Lamba marquises, the current owners, who use it as their summer residence. 

 

 

Tour

The tour is guided. The Redabue complex is still a private residence. The church (designed by Juvarra), the winery, the park and, on special occasions, some of the castle’s halls, can be used for weddings, receptions, conferences, exhibitions and other events, subject to agreement with the owners.
