  • The castle of L'Aquila is in Lunigiana: it is an imposing structure on a hill that dominates the medieval village of Gragnola, situated at the confluence of the Aulella streams and shiny. The Castle, like many other of the Lunigiana area, is out to control the traffic of people and goods that turned into the surrounding valleys: still today the castle with a look you can have almost any Lunigiana under control. Today is composed of a single building that surrounds the Tower, consisting of four floors, and the other three corner towers, while on the walls to the North are still visible some sections of battlements. The slow decay, and further damage suffered in the earthquake that hit the Lunigiana on September 7, 1920, led to its abandonment in the early decades of the 20th century. In 1996 it began a large restoration project, terminated after ten years: now the Castle presents itself in all its beauty and grandeur.
