La Rocca, Spoleto

(3.4/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Standing tall atop St. Elias hill, towering dates back to 1359 and was built by Pope Innocent VI as part of a set of fortresses meant to reestablish papal authority in central Italy. The rectangular castle is topped by six stately towers and consists of two courtyards connected by a frescoed archway. These artworks show the six cities that at the time belonged to the church. You'll also see the Hall of Honor, meant for ceremonies and banquets, and the Camera Pinta, where you'll find two 14th-century fresco cycles. The fortress also offers spectacular views of the city and countryside beyond.

  • Family trip, more comfortable for those who don't feel like walking to get there using the stairs mobili...la fortress is very nice to visit but the ticket price a bit pricey ... still recommend it for anyone who passes around here to stop and visit.

  • Definitely a place to see if perhaps the price tag is a bit high. I can't say good or bad things but at least we have helped support our cultural heritage

  • The ticket on the first Sunday of each month is free. To reach the rock you have to salirw a while but worth it. Great museums with works of each historical period. Recent prison la rocca has been well restored. Beautiful the scenery there are bathrooms and vending machines for drinks. Recommended visit.
