Borromeo Castle of Peschiera Borromeo
The castle, initially built as a farmstead in the wetlands, was transformed into a fortress in 1432 by Vitaliano Borromeo. The structure is made of four masonry buildings set around an internal courtyard.
The double row of rectangular windows and the courtyard, that includes a chapel, are recreations that date back to the 1600's.

The castle is privately owned and is not open to the public. You can, however, arrange group visits with the owner as well as school outings during the times when the castle is not being used for other events.
The complex, with its own museum, is still the property of the Borromeo family.
The castle has many frescoed rooms that can be rented for weddings, dinners or other events.
