The park and the house are enchanting, and you can also see the prisons and the cellars, and the Museum of Military Uniforms. After a pleasant morninng discovering history and traditions of the past, many people decide to visit the local shop to buy our typical products before heading back out on the road. Now we head along Val Luretta, reaching the Castle at Agazzano. The visit starts from the Rock (built in 1200 as a defensive bulwark), crosses the Castle in the old town (and restructured at the end of the 18th century), and ends in the French-style gardens, with its mythological statues and rare plants. Visits are always guided, available from 17 March to 18 November.
