The Pontebosio Castle takes its name from a bridge with low arches that lies at its feet, which you must cross in order to reach the Soliera and Venelia parish churches. Its name derives from the lords who probably had it built, the Bosi of the Verrucola.
Not far from the village of Licciana Nardi, on the left bank of the Taverone River and ready to defend the entrance to the Taverone Valley, Pontebosio became an independent feud under the Malaspina family in 1631. It has been a noble home, seminary and middle school, and its contemplation allows you to imagine its military past, though today it is completely uninhabited.
It is privately owned and closed to the public.
