Il Castello (Italian term of castle) of Bardine di San Terenzo is located in the Bardine's Valley, in the city of Fivizzano, between the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the Apuan Alps, not far from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Castello, an ancient building dating back to the 12th century, has been long used as the residence of family Nobili. Next to the building, an oratory (worship) and a chapel dedicated to Bernard of Clairvaux was built, in honour of the patron saint of the village, whose anniversary is celebrated on August 20. Thanks to an intelligent restructuring, the ancient architecture is preserved, which includes the drying room, the hay loft, and the cowshed. Placed over the hills of Lunigiana, the Castello brings back to the atmosphere of ancient times. The Castello is today a guesthouse with the possibility to rent independent flats, besides the farm yard.
