Villa del Grumello Park: a pearl of Lake Como

Lake Como is known for its breathtaking beauty, with its crystal clear waters and picturesque villas overlooking it. Prominent among them is the majestic Villa del Grumello, surrounded by a lush park that is a true oasis of tranquility and beauty. Today we will explore the history, curiosities and activities that you can do inside the Villa del Grumello Park.

History, Architecture and Curiosities of the Villa del Grumello

The Villa del Grumello is an 18th-century architectural jewel located on the shores of Lake Como, a short walk from the center of Como. Built at the behest of the archbishop of Milan, Innocenzo Odescalchi, the villa is an extraordinary example of the neoclassical style found in its elegant facade and in the decorations that adorn the interiors.

One of the most fascinating curiosities concerns the connection between the Villa del Grumello and the famous writer Alessandro Manzoni, author of “I Promessi Sposi.” It is said that Manzoni, during a visit to the villa, drew inspiration for some of the most romantic scenes in his novel. This detail adds a touch of romance and literary history to the place.
