Historical notes

The Castle fortress of Lapio was built by the Normans. The first written mention of the Castle appeared in a deed in 1130, in this deed a certain Ruggiero made a donation to Montevergine monastery.

The new owners of the Castle were the Filangieri family in the 16th century. At the same time, several remakings of the Castle changed its medieval look, transforming it from a powerful fortress into a magnificent aristocratic residence.

Today we can only admire a quadrangular Tower.

The Castle was divided into many rooms. The inside of it was richly decorated with the 16th- century frescoes. The main entrance to the Castle was an impressive portal built in the 16th century. We can also see the crest of the Filangieri family hanging on the wall above the entrance portal.

The building is now inhabited. In the near future, it will become essential extensive works of restoration in order to give visitors the opportunity to sightsee the Castle.
