At the center of the Estate is located the Villa with very ancient origins, already owned by Cacciaconti at the end of 1200 was chosen as a place of retreat and prayer on the part of the Blessed Bonizzella Cacciaconti whose body, guarded by an urn on the altar of the church of Trequanda, is exposed to worship at the solemn celebrations dedicated to her in the month of May of each year.
