Castello Ducale

Beginning with a Norman tower, this medieval castle was regularly expanded and refined to create a worthy defense and noble home.

Castello DucaleBoom and Bust

Originally a Norman watch-post, towards the end of the 11th century, they built a larger tower on the hilltop, with circular towers and a curtain wall were added around the original square structure over the following centuries. In the 15th century, the castle passed to the Sanseverino family, who refined its appearance and added a 34 meter high tower. In 1632, the castle was ceded to the Lubrano family, and began its slow decline, finally being abandoned in the early 20th century. Today, the local government has managed to restore sections of the castle, allowing visitors to make a grand entrance through the large portal, and Renaissance atrium. The interior, decorated with frescoes dating back to the XVI century now houses the town library, and is also used as an art exhibition space and cultural center.
