  • La torre di Castruccio, not valued, is located near the Creek Cann and dominates what used to be the medieval village of Avenza; the fortification, built at the beach, was an important stronghold for the control of traffic along the coast that had assumed the role of main port of luni area until you reach, between the 14th and 15th centuries, the moment of maximum trading activities throughout the Mediterranean area. Today only a tower of the medieval remains of the Castle, attributed to Castruccio Castracani that rises majestically and lonely in the midst of old restored houses and tall buildings, surrounded by the road that runs around isolating it from the context. Today the tower still shows proudly cast rear walls in fifteenth-century marble cornices twist, the last remnants of a glorious past erased by a havoc that starting from the half of ' 800, allowed the use of fortification stones to build houses and in later times the building of hideous palaces

  • Halfway between Carrara and Avenza mare is discovers large village that gives us a reminder of its long history; This is the Tower of Castruccio that is almost suffocated between care, but it's still very nice and let me wander the thought to the fortifications of a time when the sea was much closer.

  • There's not much to see. What remains of (originally) three towers before they demolished completely. Nevertheless, the visit is very rapid. so if you need a few minutes of passaggio...si can do.

  • The symbol of Avenza is unfortunately only a ruin not explored inside. Example of ancient fortification built in the 14th century by Castruccio Castracani.
