Vigolzone Castle building was started in 1330 by the Anguissolas (as indicated by the stone inscription on the main tower). It has got a rectangular plan and the front side points eastwards; there are 2 big towers in alternate corners, and a huge angle tower in the left corner.The castle is well preserved.
