Frascarolo is located on the border with Piedmont in a historically strategic position. In the fourteenth century its Castello Visconteo, site of bloody territorial disputes, was built here. Later destroyed by mercenary captain Facino Cane whose objective was to conquer Visconti lands, it was rebuilt in the early sixteenth century by the Sforza family. In 1882, the Vochieri family commissioned architect Vandone to completely restore the building and give it the appearance of an elegant and sumptuous aristocratic manor house. The castle hosts the Museo del Contadino country life museum.
