The Palazzo Colonna of Paliano (seventeenth century) is the country home to the main branch of the Colonna family from the mid 1600s until nowadays.
It is in an excellent state of preservation both inside and out. All the façades of the Palace have been restored in recent years and an accurate maintenance is carried out on an ongoing basis. The Palace is located in the centre of Paliano (in the province of Frosinone) – 60 km from Rome – next to the Church of St. Andrew and overlooks the main square, Piazza Marcantonio Colonna, Via Lepanto and Via Umberto I.
Tours are arranged exclusively by reservation (a minimum of 10 persons is required) and are always accompanied by the trusted staff of the Colonna family.
Ten fully furnished rooms of the reception apartment of the Palace (about 800 m²) can be visited, together with the entrance courtyard and the family chapel where the ancestors of the main branch of the Colonna family, from the sixteenth century to the present day, rest. Amongst them are Marcantonio II Colonna, commander of the papal fleet at Lepanto, and his wife Felice Orsini.
The visit can be completed with a peek at the beautiful church of St. Andrew (sixteenth century) and a convivial moment at the restaurant La Corte del Gusto, inside the Palace premises (ristorantecortedelgusto.it).
