The Cittadella, Alessandria

Baroque Military architecture.

Quote:
The Citadel of Alessandria is one of the best preserved European monuments within the permanent fortifications of the eighteenth century and one of the few still existing. It is the only European fortress still inserted in its original environment: there isn't a screen of homes that closes the view of the ramparts, or a heavy traffic road that surrounds the ditches.

For the first time in the history of Italy on March 10, 1821, the tricolore was raised on the bastions of the citadel by Colonel Ansaldi, during the Piedmont insurrection.[2][3] Since 2006, the Citadel (formerly National Monument) is included in the "Tentative List" for the application to the World Heritage UNESCO.

Vercelli has also a beautiful romanic and gothic cathedral! I know, it is not baroque, but I like so much!

Yes, Tommolo I am getting that impression looking over this thread. That is also true of Milan, I think, because Milan is known here as the financial and industrial capital of Italy and not really for beauty and architecture (except the Duomo)

I have certainly heard of Turin but I had no idea it was so magnificently beautiful. It is at the top of my list to visit in the future.

Racconigi is one of my favourite castle of the Crown od Delices (Unesco Heritage) because it's very particular. The nice castle is colonized every year by storks. Nests are visible on the top of the Normy's pictures. Around the castle there is a great English-style park. I love to visit this park in autumn when I can see red leaves on the centenary trees, a lot of funny squirrels and an herd of cows cutting the grass at sun near the lake. There is also a greenhouse in gothic style: it's part of the farm created by the king Carlo Alberto at the end of the park. Today the farm sell the goods produced there with the brand "Castello di Racconigi": honey, fruit, cheese and much more. Behind the farm there is a wetland with a birds sanctuary of LIPU (Lega Italiana Protezione Uccelli, Italian association for the protection of birds) where normal people and photographer can see herons, ducks, storks, gooses, swans and much more. I love this castle!

At Castelmagno you can find one of the best cheeses of Italy, a sort of unique tasty cheese, grainy and spicy, old fashoned cheeses. With a sparkling prosecco wine you'll be literally in heaven! If you get the chance, try the Castelmagno cheese, you won't regret it!
(no, I'm not the social media manager of the castelmagno cheese ahahah i'm just a huge fan of it!)

Sorry but that's heretical, no Heaven at all! Castelmagno requires a full-bodied still red wine, possibly from Langhe region (Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo). If you really want to be transgressive (or you're attending a fancy aperitivo) you can try with a structured dessert wine like Passito. Sparkling Prosecco with Castelmagno is just a little better than Coca Cola, please don't do it!

Do you think autumn is the best time to visit Turin?

I think Turin is always good except in the hottest months of the year. Autumn for the colors in the parks, winter for the snow on the alps, spring for the light on the buildings..
