MALGRATE CASTLE – VILLAFRANCA LUNIGIANA (1 hour)
The castle of Malgrate is a medieval fortification located in the municipality of Villafranca in Lunigiana, in the province of Massa Carrara. The castle is mentioned in a document for the first time in 1351, the year of the famous division between the five sons of the Marquis of Filattiera Niccolò I Malaspina, but it is certain that there were already important walled structures already in the 12th century. The complex, which rises above a hill, dominates the valley of the river Bagnone, a tributary of the Magra, and for its majesty was and remains one of the most attractive of Lunigiana.
