Palazzo Salis and more

Palazzo Salis 

Just under 30 km from the residence Piazzihouse and located in Piazzetta Salis in Tirano, Palazzo Sertoli Salis is one of the most beautiful buildings in Valtellina. It was built around the middle of the 17th century when the Salis family settled in Tirano. The entrance portal leads to a large Italian-style garden, considered one of the most beautiful in Lombardy. Today the visitor can admire a circuit of 10 rooms frescoed and furnished with recently restored period objects, including the magnificent and very famous "Saloncello".

The visit also includes a view of the baroque family church, one of the first churches dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo.  

The location also, thanks to the refined and charming atmosphere, is the ideal place to host refreshments and elegant receptions. It is also equipped with ideal rooms to host meetings and small conventions at the highest level.
