Villa Mina della Scala

Casteldidone houses the beautiful Villa Mina della Scala, a residence from the late sixteenth-century that was commissioned by Count Ludwig Schizzi of Cremona for his summer vacations with the family. Its appearance was dramatically changed in later centuries. Despite the towers and watch-towers on its exterior which could suggest the existence of an older castle, the palace was in fact originally built as a mansion home, and never fulfilled a real military function.
