Limonaia at the monumental complex of Villa del Boccaglione

The Villa del Boccaglione, located in the plain at the foot of the Bettona hill, in the Passaggio area, is an example of rural architecture from the mid-17th century.

This neoclassical structure, built on the remains of a previous construction dating back to the 16th century, was built by the Crispolti family from Betto, probably based on the architect’s design.

The villa is often described as the “little Versailles of Umbria” due to its beauty and architectural style.

Today the Villa del Boccaglione is owned by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, and represents a historical and cultural treasure for the region. Although not much information is available on its current public use, the villa remains a point of interest for those visiting Umbria and wishing to explore the historical and architectural heritage of the region.
