  • More than a castle, it is a fortified residence of the Colonna family, whose oldest part dates back to the 14th century (called ala Borgia). Sadly the Palace was damaged in World War II, but was later restored several times. In one of them, unfortunately, the old bridge to multiple arches destroyed, was replaced by a reinforced concrete single arch. Very nice is the inner square with an arcade. Curious the wall with ladders made of Tuff near the well that allowed the Knights in armour to climb as smoothly on horses. The well had two wonderful reliefs from Roman times, unfortunately stolen in times not too far away. Bare interiors (were the chimneys and chapel with frescoes) are hardly visible except in occasion of the exhibitions. Easier to see the kitchens going into a little door on the right when you cross the beautiful loggia. You can go for a long walk in the Park of the Castle, partly crossed by an ancient aqueduct that is crumbling in recent decades. Recently, on Saturdays and Sundays, may be visited an exhibition on the ground floor with the photographic history of the beautiful floral display which takes place every year on the first Sunday of July. Also there is a plastic wood which reproduces numerous significant buildings of Genazzano. Interesting classical music concerts are held and sometimes beyond.

  • This castle is pretty well maintained by the local administration. Now houses often art exhibitions. Perhaps deserve more care some areas a bit dirty in slight disrepair, give a little cleaned a little more often is not bad, even if the public should be more polite. Typical chiostrine "open"; interesting the passage leading to the gardens, lovely and with separate areas for different activities for children, kids and dogs.

  • Superb Castle, silhouetted in a really nice area. Many remarkable works of art and tapestries. Check it out, really interesting.
