A reflection of the noble family’s many centuries of dominance in the valley, a testament to periods of glory and decline, the castle stands on higher ground just outside the village of Vigo di Ton. Situated on a hill, in a panoramic position overlooking the whole Val di Non, it is surrounded by a complex system of fortifications comprising towers, walls, bastions, allures and moats dating back to the 1500s.
In 1992, Castel Thun was acquired by the Trentino regional government and, after a thorough and painstaking restoration, it was reopened to the public in 2010.
