Montechiaro Castle

Built during the XIIth century, the castle became part of a Malaspinian fief in the XIVth century. Spinette il Grande's son stayed there for some time, and the castle was a landmark between Pianura and Piacienza for the powerful family. Gibelian symbols can still be spotted on the merlons.
