Museo Di Castle Vecchio - Review

Built during the 14th century by the Scalla family, the castle was used as barracks during the war. After which massive restoration followed by an architect Carlo Scarpa and the castle was revived into a Museum- a very important event for the museum sciences.

Museo di castlevecchio is Verona’s largest museum housing a variety of sculptures, frescos and paintings most of which pertain to a religious or spiritual theme.

Some of the sculptures are:

  • "Crucifix", a 14th-century tuff work by the Master of Sant'Anastasia
  • Sepulchre of the Sts. Sergius and Bacchus, basrelief from 1179.
  • Equestrian statue of Cangrande I della Scala, coming from complex of the Scaliger Tombs

The paintings are nothing less than being life like! Some of the must see are:

  • Madonna of the Quail by Pisanello
  • Madonna with Child by Gentile Bellini
  • Madonna of the Oak by Girolamo dai Libri
  • Holy Family by Andrea Mantegna

Apart from the skilfully sculpted artefacts and the beautiful paintings, the castle itself is an architectural marvel adding to the charm of the castle is its surroundings. One should not miss the breath taking view of Adige River from the castle.

Museo Di Castle Vecchio, Verona Reviews

  • The bridge is amazing and a great place to relax and take photos of the city. We choose to visit the museum as well. You are not allowed to bring bags and backpacks inside, but they have a locker. The museum was beautiful, it is located in the whole Castelvecchio. You get to go upstairs and have a great view of the city. We ended up being there for 2 hours. I recommend it! You also have a bathroom inside.

  • We only went in the Museum because we thought we could only access the Castelvecchio bridge from there. Little did we know the bridge is readily accessible from outside. The Museum was ok but it wasn't great, lots of paintings and religious figures. What I liked is it gave us access to some areas of the castle where we wouldn't have gone if we hadn't got the ticket. The ticket itself didn't cost that much and the museum wasn't crowded so I'd say its worth visiting still.

  • What I remember more than anything is the "Fado" music being played by the accordion player outside. The music followed me around the castle. Museum is built into the very deep castle walls. You get some good views of the town and river from the top of the walls.

  • Cool castle with great art collection. Good views of river and castle bridge.

  • Castelvecchio (Italian: "Old Castle") is a castle in Verona, northern Italy. It is the most important military construction of the Scaliger dynasty that ruled the city in the Middle Ages. The castle is powerful and compact in its size with very little decoration - one square compound built in red bricks, one of the most prominent examples of Gothic architecture of the age, with imposing M-shaped merlons running along the castle and bridge walls. It has seven towers, a superelevated keep (maschio) with four main buildings inside. The castle is surrounded by a ditch, now dry, which was once filled with waters from the nearby Adige. Castelvecchio is now home to the Castelvecchio Museum and the local officer's club which can be accessed through the left door on Corso Cavour.The castle stands on the probable location of a Roman fortress outside the Roman city. Lord Cangrande II della Scala had it built along with its bridge across the Adige River as a deterrent to his powerful neighbors such as Venice, the Gonzaga and the Sforza families. Construction was carried out between 1354 and 1376 (Cangrande died in 1359). The fortified bridge was intended to allow the seigniors to escape safely northwards to the Tyrol in the event of a rebellion or a coup d'état (the Scaligeri were allies of the Holy Roman Empire) and when they eventually lost their hold on Verona, its surviving members left Italy to found a German branch of the family. Later, during the Venetian domination, the bridge was further fortified to defend it with cannons. The castle was damaged by French troops during the Napoleonic Wars (1796-7), in retaliation to the Pasque Veronesi, when the local population staged a violent anti-French revolt. Napoleon had chosen to stay in Castelvecchio on his trips to Verona, but his widespread and arbitrary requisitions of citizens' and churches' property, the massive draft of male workers into the French army prompted the resistance that eventually drove out the invaders. The bridge was destroyed by the retreating German army in 1945 and rebuilt in 1949. Under the Austrians, Castelvecchio was turned into barracks. In 1923 the castle was restored, as well as in 1963-1965.
