Villas and Palaces – Palazzo Altieri Oriolo Romano

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian) Deutsch (German) Español (Spanish)

The Palazzo Altieri was built during the years 1578-1585 by the will of Giorgio III Santa Croce. Three families historically owned the palace: the Santa Croce from the foundation 1578 to 1604, the Orsini from 1604 to 1671, the Altieri from 1671 to 1971. The Museum is divided into 14 rooms, the Chapel of St. Maximus by the Orsini, and the Gallery of the Popes.  In a stately home the garden could not be missing to give it the complete connotation of a patrician villa of about 8 hectares with the presence of ancient trees.
