The Royal Palace of Turin was the royal residence of the Savoy Family in Piedmont. It is located in the heart of Turin, in the beautiful Piazza Castello. It was the heart of the Savoy Court, symbol of the power of the dynasty, and, along with other royal residences in the Turin area, such as the Venaria Palace or Stupinigi Hunting Residence.
There are three different styles in the building: Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical. They were designed by different architects in different periods. The palace is part of a complex of buildings, in the centre of town, which are among the most important of Turin. The original building was a bishop's palace until the sixteenth century, but then Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy chose it as his residence. Behind the Royal Palace there are the Great Royal Gardens.

Emanuele Filiberto of Savoia bought the old castle. This structure hosted noble families like the Saintmerane, the Stork, the Pacelli and Calvi. The origin of the castle name is uncertain, the first document in which appears the name Valentinium is in 1275.
For some years it was neglected and it was in decadence. In 1960 the castle was chosen to be the faculty of Architecture of Turin.
The Castle is regaining the old grandeur: the first-floor rooms are opened one after the other and host representative offices of the Faculty of Architecture.
