Historical Notes

The Castle is located on the hilltop, about 600 m above sea level, in a commanding position looking over the Sabato valley.

The fortress in Montefredane was owned by a man called Robertus de Tufo which is mentioned in the "Catalogo dei Baroni". It is believed that the Lombards built the Castle in the mid-eleventh century and since that date it has been passed through many hands until it was inherited in 1650 by Francesco Marino Caracciolo, Prince of Avellino.

The Castle went through several transformations over the centuries and was completely transformed into a noble residence between the 17th and 18th centuries.

The Lombard fortress was unfortunately abandoned in the first half of the 19th century and only the ruins survive to the present day.
