The Museums of Lake Trasimeno
Castiglione del Lago Show map
The palazzo built by Galeazzo Alessi in the mid-1500s at the behest of the Marquis Ascanio della Corgna is a lovely example of Italian Renaissance architecture and features a marvellous fresco cycle painted by Niccolò’ Circignani, known as Il Pomarancio, and an antiquarium with Etruscan and Roman relics found in the surrounding areas.
A narrow walkway connects the Palazzo to the Rocca, a fortress built in 1247 with a five-sided layout recalling the constellation Leo, which also for this reason and much like Lake Trasimeno, is considered a sacred and mysterious place.
