Laurenzana - The Castle

The village is overlooked by this Castle. It was built up on a hill; behind it there is an inaccessible side.

It was created later than the village, around the XII or XIII century. During the following centuries many enhancements were made to it, even some substantial ones.

This Castle granted perfect control over the whole surrounding area, because of its position and because of its round turrets.

Inside the walls there were other defence systems that would make the stronghold virtually impregnable.

Nowadays this Castle, though in a seriously deteriorated condition, keeps its majesty.
