This event has ended

An enchanted feast and Challenge with the Befana at Gropparello Castle

Via Roma 84

Castle of Gropparello (PC)

The day when the Befana arrives, she marks the end of all festivities for the old year. But the Befana is tired of flying on her broom around the world, so this time she will stop by the hills around Piacenza and call for all children nearby to gather and take up the challenge that the Befana has prepared for them.

A different way to spend the Epiphany, with an enchanted visit to the rooms that hold secrets in Gropparello Castle, following people wearing medieval costumes.

Date: the event will be held on Jan 06, 2018

Event timetable: From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


A fantastic adventure in the wood to fight ogres and witches to defend the stronghold from the attacks of Evil, then join in the Banquet of the young Knights and Dames in the Feast Room, where they will have to face the Challenge of the Befana and defend themselves with the armour made of the good deeds they collected over the past year. Only the bravest children will make their way through the trials that the Befana prepared for this day!

To participate, each child must come to the Castle with the Parchment of Honour, a piece of paper created with the help of parents, grandparents or teachers, which lists all the good deeds that the child did over the year.
