    This beautiful building is not a castle but a spinning wheel, the oldest in Europe. Presents itself to visitors as well as it was supposed to be in 1678 when he finished his construction. The Palace houses inside an interesting Silk Museum recently expanded and renovated. With the tour traces the history of silk, and you can see in action the seventeenth-century machinery (rebuilt entirely of wood as they were!) that wrought silk. IL FILATOIO DI CARAGLIO IS THE KIND OF MUSEUM THAT APPEALS TO EVERYONE. I am sure!

    A complex integrated textile mill-spinning wheel come down to our days without suffering major architectural changes. Built between 1676 and 1678 is considered the oldest spinning machine in the world. The visit to the Museum, located at the resort, we can learn more about the production cycle and silk manufacturing working reproductions of both admire circular twisting silk. Great!

    CLA I was at a friend's wedding a few years back and we could also see all the tools used in the past for weaving. Really very interesting. The lounge downstairs is very impressive for lunches or dinners.
