The history of the Castle of Jerago
The construction of the Castle of Jerago dates back to the early thirteenth century and the events that took place within its walls are mostly linked to the Visconti family of Jerago. Like most medieval manors, it was built for defense reasons and was part of the northern defensive line of the Milan duchy.
The fiefdom was assigned in the 1248 by Ottone Visconti, archbishop of Milan to his brother Gaspare and his nephew Pietro.
In the 1402 the Castle was attacked by the enemies of the Visconti.
Several members of the Visconti di Jerago family held positions of considerable importance in the civil administration of the duchy. Antonia married the Carmagnola, captain of fortune, whose story inspired the tragedy of Manzoni. Elisabetta married Cicco Simonetta, the famous ducal secretary of the Sforza times.
The Castle was the scene of clashes even at the time of the struggles in the territory of Gallarate between Spaniards and French.
The Visconti family of Jerago became extinct with the death of Antonio in the 1751. At the end of the eighteenth century the fortress was transformed into a residence. The windows were opened on the south side and the two garden terraces were built as you can see them today.
Before arriving at the Castle on the left you can see a Romanesque church: the church of San Giacomo. The interior contains traces of frescoes dating back to different eras. Under two niches carved in the thickness of the wall one can admire a dry fresco painting dating back probably to the ninth century.
The church is dedicated to St. James because it was part of the steps of the pilgrims who went to Santiago de Compostela. The walls were decorated with frescoes from the life of St. James.
