Description
The tower house is part of a remarkable 16th century complex which belongs to the Giovanardi counts and has a quadrangular layout and dovecot tower.
it has a stone structure with angular ashlar and eve cornice with contoured corbels.
The windows are regular and squared with monolithic sandstone features.
The small tower with four-layered roof, has an attic border with the typical "T" decoration with interspersed holes for swifts.
On the façade facing south there's a part of the dovecot still remaining, it has brick features arranged in a saw-edged fashion, on the same side there's a nice entrance portal which is archivolted and orgival.
A small window on the triangular architrave bears an image depicting a moon with an arrow pointing towards the insenatura surrounded by a cordonatura and dated "M526" followed by a few illegible letters.
