Filangieri Castle in Candida

Historical notes

The ancient fortress, called Filangieri Castle, was set on a natural stone rock. It was built during the Lombard domination in the 12th century and renovated during the Norman conquest.

Over the years, devastating earthquakes and a terrible fire made the Castle unusable.

Today we can admire only the Defensive Walls and the Buttresses that surrounded the Castle. Over the following centuries, the Castle has been turned into some private residences where you can get in from a main entrance, go up the stairs and then from another entrance it is possible to see the Tower and the Curtain Walls.
