The internal halls are mostly painted by Domenichino, but there are also paintings by the Veronese school and the Bolognese and Ferrarese schools, as well as by 'Alfani’. The rooms are enriched by numerous tapestries The building occupies the surface of a terraced hill with steep slopes overlooking the Tiber Valley. The estate can be divided into two parts: the ancient fortress overlooking the Tiber Valley and the more recent Palace built in contact with the town. The old elliptical plan Fortress is dominated by a high tower topped by a crenellated attic. This tower was later incorporated into the new building, acting as a connection and integration element between the two bodies. The most recent building has a square plan with, at the corners, four large towers. The main body spreads over five levels, while the towers rise to six storeys.
