Castiglion del Lago
- The best parking in Castiglion del Lago is on the side of the Hospital (Ospedale in Italian) where is a good public parking
The Hospital parking is the best if you like to visit the Castle. (In the late evening you can do great photos from there).
Remember to pay your parking when lines are blu.
To do in Castiglion del Lago
1 The very first tour to do for me is the Castle. Characterized by an irregular pentagon shape, the fortress was built on the remains of an Etruscan acropolis, which is visible on part of the wall, and consists of a triangular tower high. 39m and four towers that strengthen the crenellated walls. Two of these were built in the first half of the XVI century, they are circular in shape, in that the round structure was more resistant to attacks with cannons.
2 Also is a very nice visit Palazzo della Corgna built from 1.563 – https://www.palazzodellacorgna.it/?lang=en
The museum of the Palazzo della Corgna is situated on the first floor, where there are eight rooms with “affreschi”. Made between 1574 and 1590 by a team of painters led by Nicholas Circignani said the Pomarancio, the scenes represent the deeds of Ascanio and various mythological and historical themes.
