CASTELLO DI GRAZZANO VISCONTI

Guided tours of the castle 2019

Castello di Grazzano Visconti - Viale del Castello

Grazzano Visconti (PC)

From September 2018 the castle of Grazzano Visconti opened its doors to visitors. The guided tours are scheduled on Saturdays and the day before holidays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sundays and holidays from 11:00 am to 4:15 pm and will last 1 hour and 30 minutes.

The castle, built in 1395, belonged first to the local noble family Anguissola and was inherited only at the end of the 1800s by the Visconti of Modrone family.

Giuseppe Visconti enlisted the services of architect Alfredo Campanini to restore the fortress. So the castle shows now part of its ancient aspect modified by the neoromantic taste of those times.

With the guided tours it will be possible to see the rooms of this castle. On the ground floor the halls, the library, the dining room, and on the first floor the sleeping rooms, each of them differently arranged and decorated with ancient furniture and neomedieval paintings, reflecting the original taste of Giuseppe Visconti. He was a versatile man, busy with many interests, from arts to industry, remembered here especially because he was the founder of Grazzano Visconti's village. He lived in the castle for many years with his numerous family: his wife and 7 children, leaving a lasting memory in the fortress.

The guided tours invite visitors to discover the extraordinary story of the castle and of the Visconti of Modrone family.
One weekend per month there will also be guided tours in the Historical Park. Days and timetable will be published on the website.
