This castle was built in 1373 and was considered to be a part of evidence of Cardinal Aegidius Albornoz’s power and control. Major parts of the castle were destroyed in an uprising but its large walls remain even today and are visible externally. The best way to reach it is to go to the Piazza Partigiani’s underground parking and take an escalator from there. It is worth visiting for its remains and beauty.
The visit is divided into four sections:
- Era succeeding the construction of the fortress, late 15th to early 16th century.
