12 Piazza Borromeo Milano Lombardia 20123 IT

The rather plain façade of this 15th century mansion is interesting for its Gothic entrance. Its pointed arch is accented with two colors of cut stone and by three marble borders decorated wth leaves and fruit.

A small dromedary kneels on the keystone. There are lovely, unusual enclosed courtyards and, in the rooms, some fine frescos.
