Rocca Roveresca, Mondavio

(4.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
The Rocca di Mondavio or Rocca Roveresca di Mondavio is a 15th-century castle in the town of Mondavio, in the region of Marche, Italy. The castle is now two museums.HistoryThe castle was commissioned by Giovanni Della Rovere around 1492 from the architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini. The castle, in excellent state of conservation since it was never sieged or bombed, houses a museum about personal and siege weapons, armor, uniforms, and battle strategies used in the age when such bulwarks were most useful. A trebuchet, built to designs of Martini, is on display in the moat. A torture renactment is on display in the dungeon.Every August 14-15, the castle sponsors a historic re-enactment of a period banquet, theater, and competitions. The events are meant to recall the reconciliation of the town with Giovanni Della Rovere, Lord of Senigallia. The castle also houses painting exhibitions.

  • Family outing to the discovery of the most beautiful villages in Italy and Vienna with its fortress was a bonus. Admission 6 Euros adults and 4 low in my opinion more than honest seen maintaining that a facility like this needs to address. However recommended visit with children too.

  • I highly recommend it to everyone! Beautiful reconstruction of Interior rooms ... Dear Lord at the ticket office that with our delight delighted us with a small but detailed historical explanation.

  • Every year I come out here I jump to the most beautiful Fortress in the Marche (if the beats with Gradara). The charm of this place is irresistible. And the night lights that they put lead this place of yesteryear nowadays enriching even more this magical place. Not to be missed.

  • But how do you keep such a beautiful fortress in that way? Entrance costs more than the Gradara Castle, no guided tour on site unless you book days before. We went to go inside (after spending well 16 € in 2 adults and a 6 years) without knowing history either because no flyers or posters in the halls ke explained what we were seeing. The basement with virtually no lights, I worked 1 out of 5 so ke the waterboard, though there was purely by accident, we didn't know was there ... all lights burnt out, went ahead in 2 with the flesh of the phones and with my daughter terrified with fear. The puppets were those of 20 years ago when I was gone, them selves!!! Not a painted or cleaned up, horrible! Simply put after 5 minutes we ended the visit and fortune friendly volunteer showed us ke anke Theatre (cute) and if not were just money down the drain!
