Built by the counts Saleh at the end of the 13th century, assumed its present appearance when it became the summer residence of King Carlo Felice. The King of Savoy was responsible for the creation of the spectacular entrance, designed by Guarino Guarini, which has two twin staircases and some bas-reliefs from Venaria, depicting scenes from the labours of Hercules. Inside valuable apartments of the King and Queen. Bellissimo il salone d'onore, frescoed entirely by trompe l'oeil, with scenes from Greek mythology. Striking the so-called Chinese salt, enriched by the presence of 18th-century wallpaper depicting scenes from daily life of ancient China.show original

But please park the cars of employees from view. It's serious, in other tourist destinations abroad, where the story feels not allowed anything like that. This is a jewel of architecture that does not deserve it.show original
