The imposing fortress, the heart of the defensive system of the Nicelli, was turned into a gracious country home in the 16th century with the addition of elegant loggias. Today it is privately owned and not open to visitors.
Built by the Zanardi Landi as an elegant residence, today it belongs to the Collegio Alberoni.
It is reached along a long avenue of limes and mulberry trees. The villa stands in a delightful position on the hills dominating the countryside.
The original nucleus of the castle was probably a tower erected in the middle of the 13th century, under the Confalonieri lords. Today it is private property and open to visitors only on special occasions.
The historic park of the castle of Grazzano Visconti belongs to the circuit of the Castelli del Ducato di Parma e Piacenza and of the Grandi giardini italiani.
The park covers 15 hectares and there are guided visits at certain times of the year.
