The romantic village dreamed up by Giuseppe Visconti di Modrone was created between the end of the 19th and the early years of the 20th century, with the intention of preserving the traditional local crafts of wrought iron and woodcarving.
The buildings surround the mediaeval Castle, dating from the 14th century, and today give accommodation to craft shops, stores selling typical local products, bars and restaurants.
Grazzano Visconti is the most important tourist destination in the Nure Valley, visited by thousands of tourists every year. Strolling along its lanes, admiring the painted decorations of the houses, the crenellated walls, the curious chimneys, wandering into the shops with their varied goods on sale, the visitor is immersed in an enchanted world of yesteryear.
On certain days of the year the village streets are filled with people in mediaeval or Renaissance dress, so that visitors can relive the pomp and fascination of the past. Among the most important of these spectacles are the Corteo Storico - the Historic Parade (last Sunday in May), the Notti di Fiaba - Fabled Nights (last weekend in June), Una Magica Giornata - A Magic Day (second Sunday of September), and the Notte di Aloisa - the Night of Aloisa (first Saturday in October).
