Castello Caetani, Sermoneta
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Thirteenth-century Castello Caetani was built as both a military fortress and a noble residence: here, you can glimpse the private and public life of medieval Lazio. Despite the fortress's large, 3 m (10 ft) thick exterior walls, Napoleon's army plundered it in the late 18th century, carrying away its valuables and furniture and turning the castle into a prison. Most restoration work was carried out nearly 100 years later. Visiting hours can be somewhat inconsistent, so it is best to check online or call first if you plan to visit.

Aniello AnnunziataThe Castle dominates the town of Sermoneta, whose old town, left everything in stone, represents a stunning photograph of the medieval period, so much so that often they turn period film (among the last tale of tales, silk and we can do is cry, besides the series Borgia). The castle was built in the 12th century by the Annibaldi and after several passages by hand between the Caetani, the Borgia popes and other dynasties, has come finally to the Caetani who lived here until a few decades ago.
