Serralunga d’Alba Castle: Tour with trekking, visit and lunch

The Serralunga d’Alba Castle Tour gives us a perfect day out in its simplicity. It has all the ingredients for getting to know the various aspects of the Langhe: the history and culture, the magnificent landscapes, and the excellent food and wine.

Serralunga d’Alba is one of our favorite villages, a little less visited than the more famous Barolo and La Morra, but just as attractive and rich in history.

  • Route: about 10 km for 200 meters of elevation gain (not challenging, but good physical fitness required)
  • Includes: Trail map to be followed on the app, service assistance for the duration of the tour, typical lunch in a winery, guided tour of the castle of Serralunga d’Alba

Additional Information

Trekking around Serralunga Castle is an intriguing experience that allows you to have history, scenery, and tasting all day. This tour is a genuine surprise, an opportunity to uncover the secrets of one of the most beautiful medieval castles in the Langhe.

We love this tour because:

What makes this tour so unique? To begin with, you can visit Serralunga Castle accompanied by expert guides. This is undoubtedly a significant added value because you can delve into the history of this imposing structure. The guides will lead you through the corridors and historic rooms, where you can admire ancient frescoes and discover architectural details that tell its long and fascinating story.

The castle visit lasts approximately 45 minutes, just the right amount of time to appreciate the castle. It’s a comprehensive experience, but it won’t be the only one of the day.

The panoramic view is one of the main attractions of Serralunga Castle: from its windows, especially from the top of the tower, you can enjoy a spectacular view that embraces the surrounding countryside and extends to the majestic Alps. The feeling of being on top of the world is truly indescribable.

The history of Serralunga Castle dates back to the 12th century when it was built as a defensive structure.

Its central tower and mighty stone walls tell stories of brave knights, feudal lords, and epic battles nearby. Every corner of the castle recalls medieval life, and as you explore it, you can live and hear the voices of the past.

But there’s more. This tour emphasizes not only the castle itself but also its surroundings. Serralunga is located in the renowned Langhe of Barolo region, famous worldwide for its prized wine known as the “King of Wines.” You can enjoy a stroll through the vineyards, immersing yourself in the beauty of this hilly landscape.

Why is Serralunga so famous, and how does its name connect to Barolo wines?

The answer lies in the rich winemaking tradition of this region. The vineyards of the Langhe are famous for producing some of Italy’s best wines, including the celebrated Barolo. And Serralunga is one of the municipalities involved in this winemaking tradition. The vines that grace the hills around the castle are an integral part of the region’s wine history.

In conclusion, the Serralunga d’Alba and its Castle Walking Tour offer a well-rounded experience: history, culture, breathtaking landscapes, and gastronomic pleasures. It’s a journey through time and flavors that will leave you with unforgettable memories of the Langhe of Barolo and the magnificent Serralunga Castle.
