Visiting Commessaggio means being strongly linked to the history and beauty of the Gonzaga family. Among the destinations that no tourist can absolutely miss, we point out: the Church of S. Albino, a neoclassical building is dedicated to the patron saint, in which two canvases are preserved, one depicting a miracle of S. Albino and the another is the vision of St. Lucia and a canvas from 1739, by Francesco Maria Crespi, entitled “apparition of the virgin to St. Francis de Sales”; the Town Hall, dating back to the time of the Gonzaga, with its bronze bell placed on the turret of the Civic Tower; The Torrazzo Gonzaghesco, symbol of local history, built in 1582-83 at the behest of Vespasiano Gonzaga, Duke of Sabbioneta and today mainly used for exhibitions and cultural events, conferences, events and for the celebration of civil weddings; the Ponte di Barche, built in 1583, the year in which the Torrazzo was also erected, and immortalized in some film shots of the 1975 film Salò di Pasolini; the Oratory of Santa Maria Prima, a neoclassical building whose interior is divided into two rooms: the circular church and the rectangular sacristy room. Today the oratory is owned by the parish church of Commessaggio.
