The history of Castello di Oviglio is a long and fascinating one. The origins of the period residence date back to the 14th century, time when Oviglio served as a small military outpost, half way between Asti and Alessandria.
Over the years, the complex developed in to a fortified village, medieval fortress, and noble residence before being purchased in 1823 by Queen Cristina of Savoy.
Hidden behind the ancient perimeter wall and protected by a secular park, Castello di Oviglio appears largely unaltered by the passage of time. The fortified tower, the ornate crenulations, the arches, porticoes, and bifore windows all testify to the edifice's ancient past
