  • 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).

  • Well kept site, contained in a harmonious natural environment, allowing you to spend some time relaxing, immersing himself in the vestiges of civilization that had settled here. The remains are well preserved, along with the beautiful church of Santa Maria Foris Portas allow visitors to visit a place rich and varied, in a medium-sized area. The monastery, not far, completes the visit. Access is free, however, inquire about opening the Church and some fenced areas. Consider that after a rainy period the land can be muddy in places, plan with appropriate footwear then.

  • 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.
