Historical Notes

The little town is located at 697 m. altitude in the midst of Costa and Faggeto Mountains.

The medieval Castle was built during the Swabian-Norman domination. The ruling dynasty of Aragon transformed the Castle into a noble residence. The hamlet was first recorded in 976 and its name was "Volturaria".

The Castle was the property of several lords in its history, among them Guglielmo de Tivilla who sent troops in the Holy Land during the crusades. Volturara Castle passed to the ownership of Nicola della Marra in 1303 remained in the ownership of the della Marra family until the 16th century.

Today the Castle has four quadrangular angle-Towers that are no more than twelve m. high and has also a wide courtyard.
