Cascina Farisengo is an example of a particularly well-preserved closed courtyard farmstead (cascina) and Manor House which is typical of the Lombardia region. Cascina Farisengo is situated inside the Po River Natural Park, only 4 Km far from Cremona In addition to being an important historic site, today the cascina is known for it’s peasants museum and a magical display of 25 carriages dating back to the nineteenth century. Around Farisengo’s central courtyard there are a number of buildings once used for different functions. On the east side, rooms and unenclosed areas were used as wine cellars, a woodshed, haystacks and barns. On the west side, eight farmhouses (today rooms for tourists and guests) housed all the workers, whilst on the north side, below the barns, the old stables housed cattle and horses and finally on the southern side, the manor house. The old stables has now been transformed into an elegant room where up to 260 seated guests can dine in a lovely setting under a vaulted ceiling supported by stone columns.
