Villa la Rinchiostra
Villa Rinchiostra is situated in the plain approximately two kilometers away from the city. The building, built as hunting and campaign residence, was transformed in villa for wanting of Teresa Pamphili, wife to Carlo II Cybo Malaspina, in 1675. The splendid porch and the austere architectonic composition give an imposing, but light, aspect to the construction, that the splendid park makes prestigious. The villa was surrounded by a wide garden, subdivided in flower-beds and adorned of flowers, arboreal essences and a citrus grove composed of bitter lemons, oranges and cedars. Around the half of the 18th century began the decline of the villa. After a series of property passages, the estate was bought, in 1857, by Carlo Lodovico di Borbone, who gave again splendor to the Rinchiostra restoring the villa and the park. Imposing trees characterize this park: the majestic holm oaks of the central avenue, the spectacular cedars of Lebanon, the magnolias, the exotic trees, the eucalyptuses and the palms.
Currently the villa "Rinchiostra" and its great park are communal property, open to the public, and are used for cultural expositions, concerts and festivals, above all during the summer.
