The Tower in Luogosano

--------

HISTORICAL NOTES

Historical notes

Over the centuries, ownership of the fief passed from hand to hand - the Gesualdo family in 1478, the Ludovisi in 1636, the Della Marra in 1676. In the second half of the 18th century, Luogosano passed to the Ormini family. The fief remained in the possession of the Ormini family until 1806.

A defensive Tower was visible only a few kilometres away from Luogosano.

The Tower was built to protect and control Luogosano and survives largely intact from the Renaissance period and overlooks the surrounding landscape.

The Tower was completely rebuilt after the earthquake of the 1980 and now the complex has a quadrangular layout and many windows. The building is more than 11 m. high and is divided into two levels.

It is entered through a vaulted passageway.
