Casa Tenchio

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


This early Baroque (mid-17th century) horseshoe-shaped building, built in the style of the Italian mansions at the time, is on the road in the old centre of Piazza. The fa?ade overlooks the courtyard with arches and Doric columns. The wooden loggia on the second floor is typical of houses in the Mesolcina valley.

Torre di Boggiano

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


This is an old medieval watchtower built in a commanding position on a rocky spur above the ravines of the Traversagna. From here there is a splendid view of much of the valley. The ruins of the four-storey tower, built on a square plan, and some remains of the walls are all that is visible today.

Palazzo Trivulzio

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


The first records date back to the early 14th century. It was originally owned by the Sacco family and then acquired by the Trivulzio family in 1480. All that remains of the fortified building on the right bank of the Moesa, extended by the Trivulzio family and surrounded by water and splendid gardens, is a portion of the tower that was also the entrance.

Casa Zuccalli e Mazio

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


It comprises two of the most interesting dwellings: Casa Zuccalli (owned by the well-known family of builders in Austria and Bavaria) with a round arch portal with faceted ashlar and graffiti depicting allegories on the walls (late 16th century); Casa Mazio, joined to the former, built in 1568 for Giovanni Pietro Mazio, 'Podest?' of Tirano, with the same portal as Casa Zuccalli, decorated with the family coat-of-arms.

Chiesa di S. Antonio Abate

Mountain Cultural/natural/religious point of interest


The church is on the cantonal road in the old centre of Piazza. First documented in 1419 and extended in the 17th century, it is built on a plain longitudinal plan with a square choir. The hexagonal fountain in the parvis dates from 1869. Also of interest are the fragment of a mural from the mid-1300s (Giottesque painting) and the late 16th-century Last Supper after the style of Leonardo
