bonoris castle

Bonoris Castle is one of the most characteristic examples of neo-Gothic architecture in Lombardy. Built on the remains of an ancient fortress, Count Gaetano Bonoris had his private residence built. The castle, surrounded by a park, stands on the hill of San Pancrazio dominating the entire historic core. The exterior with towers and crenellated walls echoes the style of the castles of the 14th- and 15th-century architecture of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta, a style that is echoed in the interior as well. Artists and craftsmen were hired who covered the castle with rich decorations, furniture and unique pieces.


lechi museum

Museum Lechi was founded in 2012 to house the collections donated to the municipality of Montichiari by Counts Luigi and Piero Lechi. The collection consists of 365 works including paintings, drawings, prints and porcelain. The collection housed in Palazzo De Tabaris covers a time span from the 15th century to the 19th century.

Enriching everything is a library of about 1,500 volumes on art-historical subjects.
