Santorso is famous for the villas found around the area. The oldest is the Villa Facci which dates to the fifteenth century. Also notable is Church of S. Maria Immacolata built between 1834 and 1839 in neoclassical style.
From the renaissance period on, the Villa Floriani has been the most important and possesses some important frescos by the artist Giovanni Demio for display.
One of the most impressive villas is the 19th century Villa Rossi. The villa is owned by the commune of Santorso and the grounds host one of Italy's most important parks. The lower park, designed by Negrin, includes an aquarium, rare plants and brooks running through lush vegetation to the main lake.
The park hosts one of Italy's most important live collections of butterflies in a walk through atrium. The park also features train rides, farm animals and children's play areas.
