3.4/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • The Castle overlooking Spoleto from afar by a sense of Majesty. But the show is even more exciting, the panorama from chills?!!! To reach the top just access to a treadmill that will get you over without stressing timetables. Well worth the trip.

  • La rocca is already impressive seeing it from a distance because of its location overlooking Spoleto. Climb up to it is easy thanks to the escalator. The Interior containing historical artifacts are the only attraction in the fortress that inside it has disappointed expectations, perhaps simply because having seen a lot I appreciate more aveek

  • You surprise because it's not what you expect! Having been for many years a jail, is transformed in a Museum! So if you are expecting a ride in a castle, is anything but! You look hard the entry because it's not very visible, little evidence!
