Con particolare di affresco murale.
It's an elegant court complex, probably dating back to the XVII – XVIII century used as a rural edifice. The volume is wide and has a stone structure. On the façade there's an archivolted portal with upper oculus. On the top there's a small dovecot with an eave border contoured with an arch shape. The windows are distributed symmetrically. Noteworthy is the fresco depicting a human figure and a prospect enclosed in a diamond with a hardly readable upper inscription.
It is in precarious conditions and subject to continuous collapses, one of which occurred in the central structure.
It was seat of a border and customs garrison of the Dukedom of Parma.
