Percorso Museale di Castiglione del Lago

The Palazzo della Corgna was built by Galeazzo Alessi in the mid-1500s as a hunting lodge for the Baglioni family and was subsequently enlarged by Duke Ascanio della Corgna to become a fine example of Italian renaissance
architecture. Inside you will find a cycle of frescoes painted by Niccolò Circignani. A narrow walkway connects the palazzo to the Rocca, built in 1247 at the behest of Frederick II Hohenstaufen of Swabia. The fortress has a
pentagonal structure that mirrors the constellation Leo, and for this it is revered as a sacred and mysterious place, just like the lake itself.
