At 70 kilometers from Vacation Rental Borgo di Vigoleno® is located the Fortress and the Castle of Agazzano that represents a successful synthesis between the austerity of medieval architecture and the elegance of the Renaissance residence. The fortress has been the property of the Scotti family since the 13th century and, with the princess Luisa Gonzaga Anguissola Scotti, they still hold dominion over it today.
Accessible by means of two opposing flights of stairs, it overlooks an extremely charming courtyard and surrounded by a garden, which was created on the site of the old moat, it is based on a rectangular plan and has round towers that rise as high as the curtain walls.
The castle, converted into a peaceful aristocratic residence at the end of the 18th century, is furnished with period furniture and preserves elegant pictorial decorations and precious frescoes within its walls.
The opening period to visit the Fortress and the Castle of Agazzano is from late March to late October.
Fortress and Castle of Agazzano is a popular destination for our guests in Vacation Rental Borgo di Vigoleno® that during their stay can, once again, enjoy the riches and history of the surrounding area.
