Extraordinary Visit at Castello in Carate Urio

Special opening of the Castello di Urio for a guided tour

SUNDAY, 03.30 – 05.00 PM

Special opening of the Castello di Urio for a guided tour of the beautiful lakeside gardens and of the historic interiors. The villa, located between Moltrasio and Carate, is distinguished from other residences on the lake thanks to the terraced terraces, statues and balustrades that decorate the garden. Built at the behest of Count Porta on the remains of a 16th-century fortification, the mansion belonged to important families such as the Salazar, the Castelbarco and the Melzi d’Eril, who here organized lavish receptions and naval battles, to surprise their guests. The magnate Richard Ginori then passed in 1947 to the baron Langheim, who with expensive works, tried to soften the forms of the dwelling and rearranged the park. Today the villa is managed by the Association Le Magnolie, which organizes various initiatives here: the particular emphasis is given to the activities of a spiritual nature, entrusted to the Prelature of Opus Dei, an institution of the Catholic Church founded by St. Josemaría Escrivá.
