Vigoleno Medieval Town

Vigoleno, a medieval town of considerable artistic and historical importance, lies on Colle Santo Stefano slope, in the province of Piacenza, and dominates Stirone Valley. Its history leads us back to the Middle Ages, since already in the 10th century this location was probably characterized by the presence of a castle which not only worked as an outpost towards Parma, but also defended the whole valley. In 1141, the small fortress acquired the right to be defended by the Commune of Piacenza, and then by the Pallavicino family.
