Main sights[edit]

  • Palazzo Gonzaga-Guerrieri (15th century), built by Louis III of Mantua. In 1515 his heirs donated it to Ludovico Guerrieri, the local commissar of the House of Gonzaga. It returned to a cadet branch of the Gonzaga in 1860; now it houses the town hall.
  • Castle (11th century), built by will of Matilde of Canossa. After a predio under the Republic of Venice, it was acquired by the Gonzaga in 1450.
