The building is located on the outskirts of the district of Crotti, in the highest part of Berbenno, along the Finale creek. The palace was the home of the Parravicini family, an ancient noble Valtellinese family, as proven by the coat of arms painted on the wall overlooking the inner courtyard.
On the first floor, close the the huge fireplace in the main salon, there is another coat of arms made of carved stone. The palace has a L shape and features a small dovecote tower located in the Southern side of the building.
The building recently underwent renovation works: the roof and the floorings have been entirely rebuilt. The current owners managed to increase the value of the building, while maintaining the umbrella-vaulted and the cross-vaulted ceilings in the inner rooms. In ancient times, there was a private chapel, now used as a technical room.
The cellars, the rooms were food was preserved and service rooms are located on the ground floor and can be accessed from the street. The apartments are on the higher floors and can be reached by climbing an imperial staircaise running along the facades of the inner courtyards. The building has recently been renovated and is in good condition.
