It can be reached on foot walking along the alley that, from the chemist’s in the square, climbs up part of the village leading to the Church of S. Michele, next to the Oldofredi Castle. It was built according to the Renaissance style, with a portico supported by columns made of Sarnico stone. From the outside you can admire the most characteristic facade of the ancient fortress, where in 1497 Catherine Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus and sister of the podestà of Brescia, visited the Oldofredis. The tower, which is no longer there, certainly existed since in his writings Giovanni da Lezze mentions a “high and antique tower”. The walls were probably demolished or absorbed by more recent buildings, but analysing the surrounding houses it is easy to imagine the walls’ ancient outline.

Today the Palace houses the Residence – Restaurant “Castello Oldofredi”
