Castel Fusano

Principi Chigi delle Rovere

The estate of the Principi Chigi, immersed in the centuries-old pine forest of Castel Fusano, is a perfect combination of art, history and nature.

The tiny chapel, a Baroque masterpiece and the spectacular gallery some geographical maps offer a representation of the world from mythical origins to episodes of Roman history, inserted in the cycle of seasons and elements.

Castel Fusano has always been a much loved estate by Family in ancient times as a hunting wildlife park today because far from the bustle of the city you arrive in a real paradise on earth.
