Thun Castle is one of the most interesting example of architecture in Trentino, the civil-military structure is typically in Gothic style and is surrounded by a complex system of fortifications consisting in towers, bastions, moat and battlements. The "Spanish door" (1566) built with massive ashlar blocks is imposing.
The fortifications are central quadrangular with strong bulwarks for the defense with firearms, four square towers at the corners, and passing the fosse, another wall with slits and two medieval towers.Passing the drawbridge (1541) and the first courtyard with a long colonnade on the north side, consisting of eighteen massive stone columns, you will find the entrance of the palace of count. On the ground floor you will find the public rooms, while on the first floor the rooms of the lords. Among all different rooms, richly furnished, the most valuable is the "bishop's room", entirely paneled in pine, with a coffered ceiling and a monumental gate (1574), where the Prince-Bishop Alfonso Sigmund Thun used to sleep.
The castle is located in the village of Ton (TN) - Italy
