Overview

The palace is a very beautiful masterpiece of the Renaissance immersed in a charming environment, which provides real life story of a sixteenth-seventeenth-century aristocratic family. The front is simple and essential, surrounded by light and functional spaces as well as the Italian garden with the fishpond and the double exedra-shaped banister.Besides there is the orchard, the vineyard, the chestnut wood and a succession of country and simple buildings for the running of the farms.

A must see experience for anyone interested in Renaissance buildings as it has been barely altered since it was completed. It has a most interesting history and stands at the head of the Valchiavenna with lovely views.
