Worth an hour visit then dining across the stret at il Castigo. The Viscontis definitely lived well and this is beautifully and historically restored.

Wow sums up this experience. For 7 euro you get a chance to see a residence dating back to the 13th century. The inside is filled with history and lavish items from furniture to wall frescos to a collection of taxidermied birds. Absolutely stunning place of residence. Of note, this is only open on Saturdays and Sundays and special events. If you do want to see this, you will have to plan accordingly. Also of note, the tour was provided in Italian, but I was provided an english translation on paper noting what was being said.

We had an hour to spare before our flight from Malpensa and this was a convenient pass time. Pretty castle and park looked inviting, but unfortunately neither was open when we dropped by (Tuesday)... Walked around the little community enjoying a gelato instead.
