The sixteenth century mansion has been the property of the Count Galleani Agliano family for over 500 years, handed down from generation to generation. The characteristic brick facade is built around arches.
The historic park surrounding the house has an impressive collection of rare and ancient plants, including: sycamore, horse-chestnut, yew and a unique hornbeam tunnel. Greenhouses, ancient frescoed outhouses and monuments dot the lawns and hills, providing an array of charming views.
The agricultural estate, which is still at the heart of our company, used to be a small, autonomous village, inhabited by workers, artisans and their families. There was a school, a bakery, a blacksmith and a carpenter, everything that enabled the small community to be self-sufficient.
Since ‘700, the left tower of the building has housed the chapel of Saints Maurizio and Lazzaro. Count Guiseppe d’Agliano’s will shows that a full-service chaplain, resided there in an apartment and celebrated Sunday and daily mass.
