Parco & Villa della Tesoriera
As its' name suggests, Villa della Tesoriera (House of the Treasurer) and its surrounding park was constructed as the personal home of the treasurer to King Vittorio Amedeo the II. The beautiful baroque mansion was completed in 1715 and has seen extensive changes of ownership and design since. During the mid 1800's tropical greenhouses and themed gardens were added to the grounds, during the 1960s the property was sold to the Jesuits, and finally after citizen protest in 1976 it was reclaimed by the city of Turin. Today it is home to the Andrea delle Corte Municipal Music Library, and guided tours of the villa offer an up close and educational look at this historical site.
