The palace Farnese was built in the sixteenth century by the Farnese family and the majestic ashlar stone portal is a coat of arms depicting a cow with calf, a castle and a bishop’s mitre. This denotes the building belonging to the former Basilian Monks of Grottaferrata (1682-1810). The monks then built a wing and an open courtyard that encloses the area of ​​access to the building.
