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 reenactment 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.By using our Mondavio trip itinerary builder tool , you can arrange your visit to Rocca Roveresca and other attractions in Mondavio.

I turisti che sono sulla costa adriatica marchigiana possono fare una bella gita nell'entroterra. Modavio ha una rocca meravigliosa risalente alla fine del '400.

Interesting and very well taken care of, offers visitors of all ages, a magnificent example of military architecture genius. La Rocca actually never bombed is intact and kept very well. recommend a visit.
Lo ammetto: sono stato un po' troppo ingenuo e mi sono fidato delle informazioni trovate su un sito non istituzionale. Così, quando ho letto "Apertura da Lunedì a Domenica" ho colto l'occasione per fa... more »I admit it: I was a little too naïve and I trusted the information found on a noninstitutional site. So when I read "opening from Monday to Sunday," I took the opportunity to visit the place (which I've seen in the past) to a couple of friends came from abroad. Great disappointment to find that Monday is closed. As much as I had already noted above I have to say that the rooms are very well kept and the reconstructions with statues are undoubtedly add value. Rated 3 out of 5 because they are now years that there are plans to "illustration" with statues of some quarters but still remain desperately empty.
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!
Nice and well maintained.
