Tures Castle, Campo Tures, South Tyrol, Italy

In the 15th and 16th centuries the grounds were renovated into an expansive castle residence, most of them built in the early 16th century. The impressive weir system, although, dates back to the 15th century. Burg Taufers has been in the possession of the S├╝dtiroler Burgeninstitut since 1977. The entire furnished and well preserved castle numbers among the greatest and most beautiful castles of the entire Tyrolean region. Of the sixty-four rooms of the castle, around two dozen are paneled. In the castle chapel, there are frescoes of extraordinary value from the school of the Tyrolean painter Michael Pacher (abt 1435-1498).
