  • I'll be biased, it's my country. But excavations of Castelseprio are plunged into a wonderful forest that draws a beautiful natural setting. The historical remains? Some ruins that, about the history and you will be amazed and some interesting guarded Museum, like millions of other places. What makes the excavations of Castelseprio unique? The context in which they are inserted. To try in autumn! Stunning woodland colors, especially at dusk.

  • I visited the ruins of Castelseprio today! The Park I was pleasantly surprised, the visit inspired me and it was nice for once taking time out on the culture! I highly recommend visiting! It costs nothing but we must protect our treasures!

  • The archaeological site of Castelseprio is a complex of Roman and medieval ruins in the Woods. Unfortunately, while fascinating, should be kept better. The grass is high everywhere and there is nothing which makes the most of the site. Nice Museum with artifacts associated with the zone lifting a bit on the site level. PS: not to be confused with the monastery, very nice and very interesting, just on the other side of the Hill!

  • Castelseprio was built when Milan became capital of the Western half of the Roman empire. Duke Ottone Visconti destroyed it in 1287 and forbade to ever rebuild it. An interesting example of non-classical archaeology. Admission is for free.
  • Beautiful place
  • The archaeological site of Castelseprio is the area where includes the remains of the ancient Castel Seprio (Castel Visevar in Milan and Varese or Sevar), destroyed by the army from Milan of the Visconti in 1285 during the wars against the noble family of the Torriani, the city After being conquered was destroyed except for a few buildings and destined to oblivion a perpetual just after the war has been rediscovered with archaeological excavations which led to the formation of the site open to the public free of charge. The ancient village was already populated in ancient times, became an important centre thanks to the Lombards until its destruction, the Center then moved lower. For this reason he entered the 2011 as Unesco under the Longobards in Italy (where there are other sites throughout Italy). Nice walk in the Park, between the green of the forest, unfortunately not saved from destruction a lot, are the ruins of the Castrum, the Basilica of San Giovanni Evangelista, Chiesa di San Paolo and the hoot-convent of Saint John (now Museum of site), while little has been saved of the ancient village, whose remains were covered. Near the site you can visit the Church of Santa Maria Foris Portas, and the monastery (FAI).
