Historical notes

The castle lies at an altitude of 820 m above sea level overlooking the surrounding countryside.

It was probably built in the second half of the 8th century. It was attacked and devastated by the Saracens in the 10th century and again in 1138 by Norman troops under the command of Ruggero II (at that time a certain Landolfo was owner of the castle).

Over the centuries, the castle lost its original strategic purpose and its original structure. It was turned into a Renaissance palace between the 15th and 18th centuries. The works were supervised by two noble families: della Marra and della Leonessa.

At present the castle-palace is in private hands.
