Alice Castello

Crossed by the “Via delle Gallie” since ancient times, Alice Castello is a small town near Lake Viverone.


The Alice Castello area was a place of great transit in the Longobard era, as evidenced by the findings in some tombs of Longobard warriors discovered in the municipal area in 1893 and 1991. Besides the Church of San Germano dell’Arborata, attested since the Middle Ages, we find the parish church (1745-1767), which, dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari, dominates the plain.

There was most likely an ancient castle surrounding the hill on which the parish stands. There are only a few remains, precisely the entrance arch and part of the walls, which date back to the 12th century and were altered several times.
