Don't lose this place if you want to know where a rich family in the Middle Age lived in Piedmont. Affrescos, wooden forniture will tell you everything about this house and what it saw over the centuries.

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.

A lovely museum with little tourists and some wonderful exhibits. Loved the picture of the Madonna by a Dutch artist of the Middle Ages, which we had explained to us in detail. It contained all the local dignitaries including the artist in the 'Crowd scene'....More
