After the Archduke left for Mexico as governor, the castle remained the residence of the Habsburgs, one of Europe’s most powerful royal dynasties. After World War I, the Italian government transferred it to the Duke of Amedeo Aosta. During and after World War II, the castle belonged to a variety of armies: Germans, British, Americans, and even New Zealanders.

The castle can be visited inside, though we arrived in the evening and it was already closed, so we went for a walk in the park. The interiors are interesting because they are recreated from photographs ordered by the Archduke. Most of the items returned from different parts of Europe.

The park, in English and Southern styles, was opened to the public in 1955.

The park, spread over an area of 22 hectares, is more like a botanical garden. The Archduke filled it with the rarest plants: Lebanese cedar, sequoias, ginkgo biloba.
