The Brescia Castello is a medieval fortress perched on the Cidneo hill, near the historic center of the city of Brescia.
The first settlements on this hill date back to the Bronze Age, but the first real construction was a small temple dedicated to Bergimus, the Celtic God.
The actual reorganization of the hill was done by the Romans who inserted the perimeter inside the city walls at the end of the ist century BC. In the 1st century AD the Romans erected a monumental Temple that was to nearly correspond to the size of the keep viscount. It is possible still today to observe the foundations and the ancient supporting walls of the stairway within this area.Places nearby:
