Still today, the imperial Renaissance castle in the heart of Villa di Mezzo in Caldaro reminds of the Lords of Campan
In the centre of Villa di Mezzo (Mitterdorf), a district of Caldaro, rises the majestic building of Castel Campan, surrounded by vineyards. Its history dates back to the year 1268 AD and Concius, one of the Lords of Campan: the dynasty moved from Termeno to Caldaro, where they constructed a residential tower, which can still be seen today. About one century later, in 1353, Heinrich of Campan, the great-grandson of Concius, was appointed Carer of Caldaro.
In 1499 the last member of the family died and in the following centuries the castle changed hands several times. In 1850 finally, it came into the possession of the family of the Counts of Enzenberg and was extensively renovated. The unique imprint of the castle is undoubtedly attachable to this family. Viticulture in the Enzenberg family, however, can be retraced back to the 17th century. No wonder that "Castel Campan" is also the name of a unique wine, a Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which is produced by the Lords of Enzenberg at their Manincor Winery.
Still today, Castel Campan impresses with its beautiful park, the spacious forecourt and the inner courtyard. Inside there are precious wall paintings and the St. Notburga Chapel from the 15th century, as well as the historic wine cellar. And how to reach the manor? It rises in Villa di Mezzo, a district of Caldaro. The castle can only be visited from the outside, because it is inhabited.
