The ghostly evocation of certain legendary characters who lived in the Lower Castle from the 14th to the 20th Centuries, offered by "Notte degli Spiriti" – Night of the Spirits –, is the time to discover Marostica's darker past. The peculiar events, shared secrets, mysteries and shadowy society which have marked the thousand year old history of the town will be evoked. The event takes place inside the Lower Castle and unfolds – in the gloom that is barely brightened by the torches – over 175 yards of parapet walks, 2 loggias, 5 dungeons and 13 rooms by a crowd of disquieting spectres and dark shapes in costume. A different and striking way of spending Halloween night, at Kilometre Zero.
The Castle also houses the museum of straw hats which offers the reclamation and appreciation of the historic record of an activity which developed from the end of the 18th Century.
The tour operator suggests:
Visit to the museum of straw hats, taking part in the event described above, overnight stay in double room in a B&B at Marostica, dinner in venues characteristic of the area. We suggest ending your stay with a tasting in a typical wine cellar along the route of the Strada del Torcolato. Cost from € 98,00 a head.
