Trevignano Romano and Bracciano

A few minutes from the residence you can visit Trevignano Romano, a town overlooking Lake Bracciano with its beaches and sporting attractions such as sailing and canoeing. Continuing along the lake you can admire the famous Odescalchi Castle which dominates the town of Bracciano. It was built in 1470 after being commissioned by Napoleone Orsini and it was completed by his son Gentil Virginio in 1485. Over the centuries the Castle has undergone profound transformations, and it is also possible to recognize the style of the famous architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini. In 1696 the Orsini family were succeeded by the Odescalchi, an ancient family of Como origin, whose prestige greatly increased when one of its members ascended to the papal throne.
