Located just near the railway station this place is a delight to watch. There is a paid audio tour inside and it is worth the money. Inside there are good paintings and murals.

The palace of Tirano, turned into a museum is absolutely worth a visit. Entrance is 7€, and the audio guide is included. Really nice little tour and the palace has some amazing fresco paintings and other decorations very well preserved.
