history of the building


Alchemy Room and Breakfast will take you into a magical world, deep, with a remarkable story.

Historical research has dated the building back to the end of 1400 and it has seen many changes over the centuries. It belonged to the clergy twice before being redeemed by the lords of the time.

Whilst digging the garden they found some flasks, tubes, parts of a still and many other items that clearly belonged to an alchemist of the time. It is no coincidence that Paracelsus, one of the greatest scholars of alchemy and medicine as well as an astrology "expert", graduated in Ferrara in 1515.

Some of the findings and a map dated 1785 are displayed in our showroom.
