The courtyard Guastalla Vecchia

Description

Built on pre-existing early-medieval ruins, the manor house of the late 15th century becomes a building structure of a considerable importance due to its strategic location, as reported by a watercolor map from the Museum Miniscalchi Erizzo.

 

The estate is a classic courtyard/farm house with a manor house made up of two floors with a loft and an old sundial set in the central wall. The buildings that surround the manor house are used as warehouses, cattlesheds and storage of tools.

 

With the end of the family name Spolverini, the estate Guastalla Vecchia (and the Villa Guastalla Nuova) was inherited by the family Giusti Del Giardino.

 

The courtyard, now restored, hosts a relais.
