The Borgo is an elegant and noble palace
at the edge of the medieval village of Roccantica.
A shelter from the frenzy of everyday life
Designed by the architect Francesco Fontana in the seventeenth century. For centuries home to the powerful family of the Marchesi Vincentini, and later the Conti Robbio Tacci, it was also a stopover for pilgrims traveling to Rome and nearby Franciscan shrines. The wall surrounding the Borgo meant that it was used as a fortress in times of turmoil.
A private village within a village, the Borgo is self-contained, with all facilities, cellars, bakery, stables, grinding wheel, church, pilgrims’ lodge, an ancient water clock, and even a theater. Its 19th-century hanging garden has a special gentlemanly charm with its centuries-old trees and views as far as the eye can see of the Tiber Valley and Mount Soratte.
The entire complex is marked by history over the various centuries and is distinguished by interesting architecture proudly preserved. The elegance and luxury of the residence, its apartments and the enchanting nature of the Sabina countryside blend together harmoniously, creating a center of extraordinary beauty.
