Two words about the village and the castle: built in the thirteenth century on the ruins of an ancient Roman agricultural settlement, Castle Lisignano is a good example of the process, from the end of the Renaissance, has seen the transformation of the feudal castles fortress-like in country residences for noble families.
The construction is similar to an isolated fortress, surrounded by a moat with a drawbridge. During the late seventeenth century, the castle interiors have been changed for the life of the new nobility. The renovation, designed by Ferdinando Galli, also known as Bibbiena (Bologna), are found on the east side of the courtyard, covered with frescoes and architectural elements that open onto an arched courtyard, while in the south there is a small grove natural whose centerpiece is a large statue of Hercules killing the lion.
