In the city center, just behind the Department of Economics of Management, hosted inside Botta Adorno’s Palace, one of the most beautiful patrician residences, stands the museum Kosmos, a word that in ancient Greek means “order”. This building boasts to have hosted illustrious figures such as Napoleone and Vittorio Emanuele II. Recently renewed, the museum is very interactive and contains more than 500 natural artifacts flanked by multimedia games, videos, and interactive stations dedicated to children.
In medieval times Pavia was known as the 'city of a hundred towers', there were more than 150 towers in town! Nowadays only ten of them remain and you can observe them while walking in the streets of the historic center. There is plenty to see downtown at a walking distance: Victory square, the beating heart of the city, the cathedral watching over Pavia with its 97 meters, the Visconti Castle immersed in a lovely garden, and several historical churches. A must-see monument is the well-known Charterhouse of Pavia, located 10 km away from Pavia, a magnificent church managed by Carthusian monks and containing the marble statues of Ludovico il Moro and his wife Beatrice d’Este.
