Villa di Torre a Cona

The medieval tower at the center of the villa which gives it its name, is the oldest part of the building, dating back to medieval times. The villa, among the largest in the Florence area, was built in the late 1700s for the Rinuccini family, who held it until 1848 when it passed to the Marquis Trivulzio of Milan, then in 1882 it was bought by the Baron Padoa.
The building of enormous size, placed in position raised above the surrounding terrain, is characterised also by the near presence of a great park, mainly composed of cypresses and oaks,which stretches along the left side of the villa and that was released at the end of the 17th century and early 18th century.
