An enchanted castle to celebrate your love dream and to turn the best day of your life into the most beautiful fairy tale. This is Cavernago Castle’s promise. This building is a wonderful Renaissance manor house, nestled in the soft and green plain of Bergamo. It was built between the XVI and the XVII century on the ruins of a thirteenth-century group of houses, then it was restored by the Gonzaga family from Vescovato, the current owners for more than sixty years.
You can just cross the threshold to feel like a princess. The romantic entrance is the ideal royal pathway for the bride and the groom, with the beautiful St. Mark’s Church in front of the castle, which majestically dominates the valley with its giant gate on whose top there is a marble eagle. Walking through the path, you arrive at the lovely square court, which is totally covered with frescos and dominated by an old black marble well, streaked in white: the perfect support for the wedding-cake cutting. The double loggia, instead, covered with frescos as well, is the perfect location to host the aperitif and starter buffet. The five indoor halls, adorned with some vaults painted by Giacomo Barbello from Lodi and Gian Battista Azzola, are little works of art, and represent the ideal setting for a refined and exclusive banquet.
On the top of the tower that dominates the surrounding countryside, you can plunge yourself into an evocative scenario that surrounds the valley of Bergamo, and you can admire also the other tower of the Castle, at whose basis there is a secret room. It is a special place to take some photos of the wedding, as well as the adjacent park enlivened by a lovely land full of haystacks and characterised by a romantic wooden bridge that passes above a stream where willows are languidly reflected.
At the sunset, the evocative light of the torches will give magic and beauty to the atmosphere of the portico, the courtyard, the columns and the battlements of this enchanted Castle, where you can even celebrate your civil rite near the well in the middle of the courtyard, or in the solemn Sala dei Girasoli (Sunflower Hall), covered with frescos.
Finally, Longhi Banqueting’s staff represents an essential support for a professional and careful organisation of an impeccable wedding reception, paying attention in fulfilling any of the bride and the groom’s dreams. The menu is exclusively realised with seasonal and very-high-quality ingredients, in order to exalt the dishes created by the chefs, blending the typical cuisine of Bergamo with an original touch.
