Palazzo Ancajani is located in the small hamlet of Tenaglie near Montecchio. It was built in the early 1700s by Filippo Ancajani, a Gerosolimitan knight (knightly religious order born in the period of the crusades), and sergeant major of the papal army. After the last restorations by the current owners set up in some rooms of the palace a permanent exhibition of peasant civilization.
