  • Noble building, located in the main street of the city, named after the local noble John of Abraham Salmatoris, who had it built in 1620. Is known as the "Palace of peace" because it was the site of important historical events, including: the signing of the agreements that put an end to the war of succession of Mantua and Monferrato in April 1631; custody of the Holy Shroud in 1706 in the room called "the silence", frescoed by Sebastiano Taricco; the armistice between Napoleon and the Kingdom of Savoy in 1796 (remembered as peace of Cherasco).
