Zavattarello Castle in the upper Oltrepò Pavese

Zavattarello is a village in the upper Oltrepò Pavese, at the centre of the 4 provinces: Pavia, Alessandria, Piacenza and Genoa. A strategic location between one valley and the next, between the plain and the sea. We visit the Zavattarello Castle and it is something unbelievable! Today's lord of the castle is the Mayor of Zavattarello, the casle is an heritance that needs to be put to good use.
