The Estate is heavily entwined with the history of this medieval hamlet which dates back to the Romans, for whom this was a renowned resting spot on the road connecting Bergamo to Como. At that time this was considered the principle town in the San Martino Valley; the stretch of land between Bergamo and Lecco.
Constructed during the 14th Century the main building was the focal part of the Estate’s surrounding farmland and activities focused around the stables, barns, granaries, water wells and ovens as well as living quarters for dwellers and the Landlord.
The brick wall which surrounds the main barn and farmer’s dwellings offered protection from looting, all too frequent during the 16th Century, these buildings have now been fully restored to their original state.
