HISTORICAL NOTES

Historical Notes

The Castle ruins are located on a hilltop called Serpico, about 600 m above sea level.

The hamlet was first mention in a document in 1146 as a certain Torgisio de Crypta was the feudal lord of Sorbo Serpico.

In the 12th century the fortress in Sorbo Serpico belonged to a man called Guido Capece (which is mentioned in "Catalogo dei Baroni") whose descendants held it during the Swabian, Angevin and Aragonese domination.

The castle was built by the Lombards and since that time it passed through many hands until it was inherited by the Brancaccio family whose descendants held it until the abolition of feudalism (1806).

The old hamlet was gradually abandoned after the plague decimated its population in the 15th century.

The castle's sturdy defensive structure still remains to the present day.
