The castle of Villalta, Italy

The castle of Villalta is one of the most suggestive castles of the region.

It boasts an ancient history and dates back to X - XI century.

It is a romantic medieval castle situated in a dominant position on the Friuli plain. His story is lost in the mists of time, as attested Roman foundations and traces of a castle. But it is an ancient legend to give a touch of romance and mystery of this wonderful castle: it is said that on nights of full moon, the ghost of the beautiful Geneva wanders into the castle in search of her husband.
