Castello di Fagnano Olona

Where
Fagnano Olona (VA)

Not far from the previous stop, our tour of Varesotto's castles continues to a manor built near the Olona River whose origins date back to between the 10th and 12th centuries, although the buildings around the inner courtyard and the two towers were built a little later.

This structure was restored in the 16th century by Gaspare Visconti, heir to Vitalino Visconti Borromeo, who received the title of Count of Fagnano from Charles V in 1551.

The castle's original complex was enlarged with new buildings that extend towards the village and an entrance courtyard preceding the old main courtyard, which is accessed through a baroque-style gate. Visitors to the complex will find the tower on the right well preserved, with its ornamental saw-tooth motif - characteristic of Visconti-Sforza castles - clearly visible.
