Monticello d’Alba

Monticello is made by two parts: the highest, where the town hall and the most ancient buildings stand around the castle, and the lowest, on the road to Alba and Bra.

The castle is surely the most important feature of the town; it’s one of the most important and best preserved medieval buildings in the Langhe.

It’s owned by the counts of Roero since 1372, and it’s been recently opened to the public. Inside there are a beautiful court, a salon, and other rooms. The patronal fair, dedicated to san Felice, is held at the end of July.

History

It has been one of the main feuds of the bishop of Asti, who gave it to the “de Govono”.

Later, it was owned by the Malabaila, who were driven away by popular disorders lead by the Roero family.

The Roero acquired the feud in 1376, and still owns the castle.
