Christmas markets fascinate everyone. The atmosphere is something magical, almost surreal. Although the markets of the mountain villages and northern European countries are the most famous, the Grazzano Visconti market near Piacenza can also give you that traditional Christmas market atmosphere.
Every year, the village of Grazzano Visconti gives its visitors unforgettable Christmas weekends with its beautiful market and numerous events dedicated to both adults and children.
Grazzano Visconti is located in the province of Piacenza. It is a neo-medieval village and visiting it is like going back in time.
During the early 20th century, Duke Giuseppe Visconti di Modrone wanted to give new life to the old town. Reconstruction work began on the castle and was so appreciated that Grazzano is now visited by thousands of people every year.
