ancient castle for sale
Lombardy – Milan. The area where the villa resides is full of history. Of Roman origin, while still conserving even more ancient memories, with connections to the Celtic population that left deep and undoubted cultural signs with reference to the Roman domination.
The surround area, running with torrents that from the beginning of time produced deep subsidence and undulations, presents its vast green surfaces, embellished by famous villas.
The setting of many fierce battles, which reached a climax with the destruction of Milan and surrounding communes by Barbarossa, this area became an important commercial intersection during the XIV century thanks to the main road leading from Milan to Como. The history of the small town then encountered a very dark period, in conjunction with two plagues, that struck many other countries between 1575 and 1630, causing death, destruction and misery. And yet even during these years, numerous lordly residences grew, dedicated to amusement and distraction from town life: these over time became the fulcrum of a reorganization of the agricultural land into great businesses, some of which still exists today ignoring time and still contributing to an invaluable richness.
The urban and economic centre of north Italy, Milan has managed to maintain and safeguard its extreme beauty and preserve its wonderful landscape. Situated only a short distance from the Lombard metropolis, this area is easily reachable.
