Castellana

At almost 500 m above sea level - opposite Gropparello - the village of Castellana is built on the very watershed that separates the Chero from the Vezzeno and dominates the varied countryside: vineyards, woods, green meadows and cultivated fields witness to the importance of farming in the area.

Even though the houses look modern, Castellana has ancient roots. Founded by the Romans, in the Middle Ages it was a fief of the Anguissola-Scotti.
The most interesting building in the village is the imposing Parish Church dedicated to Santi Cosma e Damiano, in a dominant position.

Nearby (in the area of Magnani) is a 16th-century tower-house (privately owned and not open to visitors).
