Built in 1354 by Cangrande II, Castelvecchio is connected to the other side of the River Adige by the Ponte Scaligeroa, a fine example of 14C military architecture. From the garden (free entry), you can admire the famous statue of Cangrande I della Scala which watches over the building. The castle is home to the Museo di Castelvecchio, a stunning example of modern museum architecture designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa.
