fort, tower (deprecated)


The tower was built in the thirteenth century on the land of the Mardoni family. The tower is of square plan, measuring ca. 7.5 meters per side and standing to a height of 15 meters. It rests on ancient Roman foundations. A structure, now ruinous, built in peperino once surrounded the tower. Its location is strategic in terms of a commanding position along important roads.
