Può sembrare un castello, senza avere reali fortificazioni o strutture di difesa, oppure una villa veneta, senza raggiungere la perfezione e l'equilibrio di Villa Pisani, ma merita sicuramente di esse... read more »It may seem a real Castle, fortifications or defence structures, or a Venetian villa, without achieving perfection and balance of Villa Pisani, but definitely deserves to be visited.

Built in 1570 by the Obizzi, mercenary captains of French origin, to celebrate the glory of the family, the Catajo Castle has hosted great international festivals over the centuries for the aristocracy, with rides, naumachie, plays and dances. The main floor was painted by the celebrated Giovanni Battista Zelotti, who at Catajo painted one of the most important fresco cycles in Northern Italy car celebration. In 800 the Catajo Castle, enlarged and enriched, it became the home of the Court of the Este of Modena in exile, then turn into Habsburg of Austria Hungary hunting imperial residence. By 1929 the Catajo belongs to the family From Francesca. Today the castle is open to the public with guided tours and events: a fascinating journey through history between walls, courtyards, historic gardens, terraces, rock-cut corridors and beautiful rooms, with the splendid frescoes by Giovanni Battista Zelotti.show original
