San Giovanni in Croce

Home of the extraordinary Villa Medici del Vascello, built in 1407 by the powerful Fondulo family on the ruins of an ancient castle, now owned by the local authorities. A vast park opens out at the back of the building, with a suggestive walk among exotic buildings and ruins of the past. The villa is linked to the name of Cecilia Gallerani, the subject of the famous portrait of Leonardo da Vinci's "Lady with an Ermine". The ancient Parish Church of San Zavedro is also of great importance.
