Chigi Palace


Located in the town’s historic center, it forms the scenic backdrop to the monumental Court Square. Once the ducal residence of the Savelli family, it was purchased in 1661 by the Chigi family, who entrusted its renovation to Bernini and his pupil Fontana. It represents a unique example of an unaltered Baroque mansion in the world, and has behind it the enchanting historic park, an ancient wooded area that also contains a romantic garden.

Inside, Palazzo Chigi houses important frescoes and decorations, rare and perfectly preserved furnishings, as well as a valuable art history library and the Museum of Roman Baroque, which collects important works of the 17th and 18th centuries from various Collections (Fagiolo, Lemme, Laschena, Ferrari and others).
