HISTORICAL NOTES

Historical notes

The village rises on the hilltop at 640 m. altitude.

People settled around the fortress that was built during the Swabian-Norman domination. The Castle was probably built in the second half of the 11th century in order to protect the surrounding territory from Byzantine raids. Since 1240 the castle passed through many hands- the Spanish Captain Consalvo Fernadez de Cordova, Ugone de Luca and Charles III, king of Spain.

After 1825 the Castle saw many defensive additions and was transformed into a noble residence.

Three of the original four towers are still standing. The fourth and tallest, is believed to have crumbled during the earthquake of 1456.
