Historical records of Ruspoli Castle go back to 847, when it was still a rocca (fortress), which went on to become a monastery. In 1531, it was turned into a family mansion, with the garden and its mazes added in 1611.
The Castle was refurbished with a view to hosting social and corporate events. It is situated in the town of Viganello, 70 km from Rome and a mere 18km away from Viterbo, the second largest city in the region of Lazio.
Each region belonging to Tuscia, as it is known, is surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and is the country’s largest producer of hazel nuts. All towns of the region date back to medieval times. Many of them boast famous gardens and properties belonging to the period.
Accommodation for the family of the bride and groom is provided in the Castle. Accommodation for more family members, if required, may be provided through partnership properties located in the town of Vignanello.
We work in partnership with local hotels in Viterbo, Lazio’s second largest city, after Rome. The city is a jewel and is easy to get to. Guests may arrive both on the day of the wedding or several days prior to it. We’ll be on hand to recommend restaurants and cultural programs for the perfect weekend.
With regards to transfers to and from hotels on the date of the event, guests are able to book transport times when making reservations.
Transfers from Rome to the Castle, with departure schedules and arrival times in Rome.
The wedding ceremony may be held at one of three venues. One is Colleggiata de Santa Maria della Presentazione Church. The Prince and patron of the arts, Francesco Maria Ruspoli built the Church in 1725. Located opposite the castle, the Church received the blessing of Pope Benedict XIII shortly after being built. The Pope commissioned artists from the Vatican to paint the frescoes of the first floor of the Castle as a votive offering.
Another possible venue for the ceremony is the chapel situated on the ground floor of the building, which was built in dedication to Santa Giacinta Marescotti, the town’s patron saint.
The bride and groom may even choose the Castle garden as a location for the ceremony.
