Castello di Buronzo reviews
Very small country village in the Vercelli area with a castle which unfortunately has been left to go almost to ruin. However, the village is beautiful and if you are in these parts it is also worth a stroll.
It is a very interesting complex, since it is one of the few examples of a consortium castle still existing, that is a set of palaces and fortifications within which the different branches of the same family of feudal lords lived together. In our case it was the Buronzo family who, divided into seven colonnellates starting from the 13th century, decided to divide the noble shelter of which each of the family branches owned a part. The castle shows a complex structure, in which it is possible to identify the various construction phases that took place over the centuries starting from 1039, the year in which Guala di Casalvolone was invested with the fief by the emperor Corrado II. An architectural cross-section of great importance is what remains of the sleeve of the north-east fortress, in the walls of which you can see the alignments of the holes that served as housings for the beams of the wooden ceilings of the building which developed at the turn of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries; there are also some mullioned windows in the upper part, indicating the formation of a lower ceiling. The examples could continue, bearing witness to the richness of history that the castle of Buronzo holds.
Remains of a castle in the Vercelli area visited in the evening obviously closed but with the darkness it shows a different beauty.The village is very small but historical still visible the structures built in a truly beautiful time.
I only visited it from the outside. The castle is located in the historic center of the town and is very characteristic. From the folders, the ones that tell his story, I understood that the castle was not one. Rather, there were the medieval buildings, which were modified according to the periods and needs. Some parts are ruined, but despite this, the castle gives a nice impression of the bygone era.
