We are going to accompany you to the beautiful castle of Christmas dream in Melazzo, Piedmont. It was built in XI century when Melazzo was an imperial fief of Conti d’Acquesana evidenced by iron crests wrought at the entrance. Here the earl Guido was born. In 1034 he became the Bishop of Acqui and later, in 1070, after his death, he was proclaimed Saint and Protector of Acqui diocese.
The castle was built to defend the village that seems to be in peace and serenity nowadays. In length of time the castle has become a symbol of the most romantic love stories since the early 80s and now it is a perfect place for wedding receptions.
