Piacenza

Piacenza is located in the heart of Po Valley on the right side of the river, at the confluence of the River Trebbia on the west with the Nure stream on the east, and it is surrounded by hills. Its geographic location was militarily strategic and has also determined its current function as an important railway and road hub. 
Founded as a Roman colony with Cremona in 218 b.C., this city near Milan, home to our castle for sale, was sacked several times due to its boundary location. However, over time it became a powerful colony and one of the most renowned cities of the Po valley area. Piacenza was governed by bishops from the 9th century to 1090, then it became a city-state and one of the founders of the Lombardy League. Afterwards, it was ruled by the Visconti and by the Sforza until 1449, when it became part of the State of the Church and then capital of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza. After the Napoleonic Age, when our castle for sale was built, Piacenza was ruled by Marie-Louise of Hapsburg and then by the House of Bourbon until 1859.
Its thousand-year-history has contributed to creating its relevant artistic heritage. Monuments of great interest are the Cathedral, the Basilica of Sant’Antonino, the Basilica of San Savino and the renaissance Basilica of Santa Maria di Campagna, as well as the various aristocratic and bourgeois palaces. From these comes the definition of "the city of palaces" which defines Piacenza par excellence. Besides the Museum of Natural History and the Ricci-Oddi Modern Art Gallery the town has different Medieval and Renaissance museums. Piacenza's area is mostly hilly and mountainous, but it is also divided into different valleys. Many natural parks are present such as the Provincial Park of Mount Moria and the Reserve of the Piacenza Area.
