The 3 November 2019 starting at 15:30, special visit of the Castle of Urio to discover the beautiful lake gardens and the historic interiors.
The villa, located between Moltrasio and Carate, is different from the other houses on the lake thanks to the terraces, statues and balustrades that decorate the garden.
Built at the behest of the conte Porta on the remains of a 16th century fortification, the residence belonged to important families such as the Salazar, the Castelbarco and the Melzi d'Eril, who organised sumptuous receptions and naval battles here to surprise their guests.
From the magnate Richard he then passed in 1947 to the baron Langheim, who with expensive work, tried to refine the shapes of the house and rearranged the park.
Among the various initiatives hosted at the Castle of Urio, now managed by Associazione Le Magnolie, of particular importance are the activities entrusted to the Prelature of Opus Dei, institution of the Catholic Church.
Return at 15:30 in Via Pangino 1 - Carate Urio (CO). Parking inside the property.
