The experience
It is the castle, built on the ancient remains of a Roman castrum guarding the Via Augusta, the area of the ancient parish church of Sant’ Andrea, built in 1454 after the devastation caused by the plague, the ‘area of the seventeenth-century Sanctuary of Our Lady of Grace and the convent of the Dominican Fathers, that connect the “Oldest Village,” located in the fortified area, to the “New Village” built during the Renaissance.

From the magnificently preserved Cordovado Castle, it is possible to admire the external area consisting of the moat, the masonry access bridges, the two characteristic towers and the surrounding walls that, even today, enclose within them splendid historic dwellings dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Prominent among these is the Piccolomini-Freschi palace: dating back to the late 1500s, it was built on the medieval remains according to the classic Venetian architectural scheme with a central passing hall. The palace is surrounded by a wonderful 19th-century park that can be visited during the “Open Castles” event. Also within the village is the Agricola Palace and the small, recently restored medieval church, which contains a fresco attributed to the school of Giotto.
