It was restored at the end of the 19th century. The castle today presents a trapezoidal shape with corner towers with circular shape, an elegant court with a travertine well from the 16th century. Despite the various modifications, it military purpose is still visible, with reference to Lombardy architecture from the 15th century. An ample park surrounds the castle, centuries-old trees and some statues from the 18th century enrich the building.
