This house, located close to the Town Hall in the old town center of Berbenno, underwent renovation works that followed the rules of the 16th century palaces, maintaing only a few features of the original bulding - a convent. The building is quite small and has a U-shape, is oriented Southwards, thanks to which it has a good sun exposure. The house is accessed from the Town Hall square.
A vaulted portico leads to an inner courtyard, from which all areas can be reached: the cellars, the stairs leading to the higher floors, the garden, the barn, the stables and the bakery. The palace is thus a sort of small settlement, well organized around the courtyard, that features a cobblestone paving with a rainwater drainage system.
The aparments on the higher floors have been completely renovated and lost the original appearance and layout, but on the first floor there are still the original inlaid coffered ceilings. The building appears well preserved thanks to the renovation works that partially maintained the original architectural features. Traces of frescoes can still be found on the walls of the exterior gallery.
