Overview
More
In lonely and dominant position, the castello dei conti is located in the area where there was an ancient Acropolis in pre Roman times. Has more than a thousand years of history. Its origins date back to the 8th century; in the Middle Ages, it became the strategic centre of the de Ceccano county, nobles of German origin that descended in Italy with the Lombards. The family disappeared in the 15th century because it remained childless. At that time, the Princes Colonna of Rome took possession of the castle and transformed it into a prison, closed in 1973. Worthy of interest, indoors, a portion of a fresco of the 13th century, an iconographic calendar of months of the year, sacred paintings and graffiti made by prisoners at the end of '800. Outside, elements of the medieval fortress, as the ravelin with a machiculation, the remains of an ancient chapel, Ghibellines battlements and a Gothic octagonal rosette. Wonderful landscape you can admire from bastion.

What a spectacular place. A gemstone at the top of this little medieval town, overlooking the whole countryside and river valley. Former prison, then castle. Recently restored to its initial beauty. Go and hear all the stories linked to this place, we were so lucky...More
