The house is located in the medieval village of Corenno Plinio, in the municipality of Dervio, which overlooks Lake Como, in Lombardy.

Consecrated in 1365, it was ordained parish in 1566 and subsequently enlarged and renovated.

On the façade, on the flanks of the entrance, you can admire the sepulchral monuments of the feudal lords of Corenno. Some artworks, attributed to the XIV century masters of the town of Campione, are rich in sculptural elements, which have a religious symbolism of particular interest. The castle, with walls crowned by battlements that protected the patrol path, can be dated back to a period between 1360 and 1370 and is a typical example of a castle-yard, or rather a fortification built as a refuge for the population in case of attack.
