A brief history
With its rectangular form and crenellated towers on the four corners, San Gaudenzio Castle reflects the typical architecture of 15th century castles in Lombardy. With its beautiful square or arched gothic mullioned windows, it illustrates the antique transformation from a fortified manor house to a delightful residence and today we can envisage the magnificent balls and parties that were once held by the noble families – Beccaria, Taverna, Trotti – who inhabited these splendid chambers.
The elegant rooms and the surrounding environment, carefully restored to their original grandeur, take us back in time. We can admire the internal square courtyard with an antique stone well and delightful frescoes, the weapons gallery with its cross vaults, the Swan Room, the Flower Room, the Ladies Room, the library and the study all hold traces of their past splendour.
