  • They had beautiful pigeons along the courtyard. Dont forget your binoculars!
  • Surprisingly beautiful inside. Ceilings are painted a bright sky blue with gold stars. At the moment there is a special tapestry exhibit from 1600s. Look for marker in floor for Sr Volta the Italian electrical scientist from Como for whom voltage is named.
