History

Malaspina Dal Verme Castle in Bobbio is a fortified construction composed by many structures, closed within the stone city walls.

It is possible to enter from two entrances, both located in the northern part.

The distribution of the inner spaces of the central tower is quite functional: on the wall of the stairs for the upper floors, there is a fresco from XVI century, that portraits the Madonna with Jesus.
