lock Is immortalized in 1494 in the known water color of Duerer, the lock “Castello del Buonconsiglio “was based along a city wall in the first half of the 13th century as imperial presidium which would have dominating, in relation to the city, a position. Since 1255 it becomes the main place of meeting of princes - bishops of Trento which, with a current of the millennia, turns into the beautiful residence.

It is about ensemble of constructions which were constructed during different eras and which are surrounded with majestic walls with bastions, and about a remarkable Italian garden in this ensemble. Over all complex the round tower of Augustus to which it is possible to get through the yard of medieval construction of Kastelvekkio (The old lock) which ornament is the spacious loggia executed in Gothic Venetian style towers. Nearby there is Manya Palazzo (Big palace) built with observance of noble proportions of Renaissance by the cardinal - the humanist Fernando Clezio and is decorated with works of such great masters of the Renaissance as Girolamo Romanino, Dosso Doce, Marcello Fogolino and Zakkaria Dzakki.

Frescos that is covered by the walls of the Tower of the Falcon dated in the fourth decade of the 16th century are devoted to a hunting subject, one of entertainments preferred by a noble layer. Elegant figures, landscapes with northern aspect, camosci rich with the woods and pure open spaces of water where hunters, in feet or on a horse and variously armed, pursue boars, bears, or fishermen throw networks. On the western wall the city of Salisburgo, in its ancient order, in barocche style is recognized.
