Description of the buildings

The main watching tower was built in a strategic position and between the 10th and the 13th centuries it was incorporated into a fortress; moreover, in this period further towns were built.

During the Middle Age, the towers were inhabited by soldiers and the castle became a reference point also for the pilgrims from North Europe who wanted to go to Rome.
In the 14th century the castle was converted into a monastery, which was later abandoned and became subject of quarrel among local lords.
