The villa of Catignano was built supposedly due to the initiative of Lodovico Sergardi, noted humanitarian known also by the pseudonym Quinti Serrano (1660 – 1726). The villa has a rectangular layout, which develops, on three continuous levels, with a small extension that suggests an L shape. With regards to the interior, note the entrance hall on the ground floor, characterized by three stone columns that support an entablature with the coat of arms of the Sergardi family. On the first floor are rooms with painted architectural features, decorated attics and beam supports in wood and plaster. The Italian style garden, accessed by two flights of steps, is divided into three sections: the first is characterized by a series of ornate flowerbeds and spherical box hedges, the second is made up of a vegetable garden and apple orchard and the third presents a maze formed by box hedges.The chapel of Santa Croce is dated 1697. Rich decorative props characterize the internal walls. On the far wall and altar is the sculptured representation of the story of the True Cross.
