Cascina Farisengo is a typical Cremonese farmhouse, particularly well preserved and one of a kind due to the presence of a beautiful garden with a pond. The first historical document is a deed owned by 965 AD. The manor house is a historic 15th century residence with a series of rear frescoes (period 700-800). The historic park is from the 1800s but there are documents dating back to the land registry of Charles V that already mention the presence of a viridarium (organized green space). Now home to a quaint charming farmhouse, it houses 11 finely restored rooms.
Cascina Farisengo History
A few kilometers from the center of Cremona, immersed in the green of the countryside, stands Cascina Farisengo, a historic fifteenth-century residence that brings visitors back to the life of the past. The complex overlooks a large courtyard, with the buildings that once were the farmhouses now home to 11 rooms, spacious, bright and equipped with every comfort. The old stables have now become an elegant hall that can be used for events and wedding receptions and on the same side we find the museum of rural civilization and a collection of vintage carriages dating back to the 19th century.
Among the historic Cremonese gardens, that of Cascina Farisengo is among the most cared for in Lombardy. As such it is protected by the Fine Arts. It is considered "green of respect" since 1951.
Equipped with a lake of 2,500 square meters with its own spring waters, the garden has two fountains, the fisherman's house and the Swiss cottage. In addition to the aviary, icebox and greenhouse, characteristic elements of nineteenth-century Italian gardens.
