Fortezza di Mesola- Locanda, Tunnel Entry

The entire forested area was acquired in the XV cent. by the Este family, who decided to transform it into a rich hunting ground. The idea of Ferrara lords was to build a new Delizia that would have had at the same time an important defensive role against the powerful Republic of Venice and all the features to ensure moments of leisure to the entire court. The structure today appears intact in all its splendor and hosts events, conferences and events of various kinds. In the inner rooms you can admire suggestive evidence of its past: original frescoes and decorations, a family tree and the coat of arms of the Este, maps depicting the history of the estate.
