A Sunday escape at less than two hours by car from home. Spring reaches its apex at The Castle of Pralormo, an imponent structure dating back to the Middle Ages and lately transformed into a noble residence. Today we can admire a building that dates back to the nineteenth century and that’s the private residence of the Counts Beraudo of Pralormo who own it from the 1680.
The estate includes, in addition to the castle, the historical park, flowered garden, the Orangery, ancient greenhouse for citrus fruits, and the Castellana rural estate and the farm.
The castle hosts lots of cultural events among which the most colourful one in April: Messer Tulipano with the flowering of tens of thousands of blooming tulips, anecdotes and curiosities about these magnificent flowers.
This year is the twentieth anniversary of this the great exhibition that offers different varieties and a different colour theme and this year hosts a collection of black tulips. I love them!
