This is a beautiful preservation of history. The place brings you back over 500 years in time. This is by far the the best historic site in Saluzzo and Saluzzo is worth the visit!

It is a small museum with some furniture and frescos. On clear days, there are great views of the city and the mountain.

We visited the Casa Cavassa with 3 children (14,10,8) we had a wonderful morning here. The children and I enjoyed the museum and the view was beautiful. I would definitely reccomend a visit here when in Saluzzo.
