Tirano palace, one of the most important of Valtellina, presents late XVIth century facade, limited by two towers and with a “barocco” central portal made on a project of Vignola. At the entrance there is a portico leading to the suggestive garden “all’italiana”. Inside the palace, the Scalone is very interesting, together with the Salone d’Onore and the so-called Saloncello. The longe has a ceiling with frescoes of the XVIIIth century probably belonging to the artist Cucchi. The Saloncello has a very interesting fresco, of the XVIIIth century and a barocco fireplace, with decorations representing the weapons of the families Salis and Wolkenstein.
