  • After a long "climb" walk we arrived at the entrance to the Rocca Abbaziale, Subiaco in which over the centuries have alternated the most important noble families of Lazio (Borgia, column, Braschi). La Rocca is on two floors and well prepared guide drove us between rooms, chapels and halls, describing the decorations and telling anecdotes about the history and development projects undertaken by the Association Ethea. Our thanks goes to them for having recovered and giving us the opportunity to enjoy yet another treasure of Italy.

  • The tower and the wall is not allowed. Other halls are empty, unfurnished. Painting of grubovaty, and at times simply rude. Many in dismal condition, showered, mold. The guide tells about the distorted landscapes and grotesques, as well as about the symbolism of the coat of arms of the Colonna family changes over time. Quite uninteresting. I think the visit is simply a waste of time, all the more so from the parking lot on heat were scrambling for quite a long time.

  • The building dates back more or less to the year 1070 by the Abbot St. caustrale school, John V, high priest feudal Lord, who wanted to erect a veritable fortress with Tower, Church, Palace and walls. The original appearance of the fortress was that up to remakes dictated by Pope Pius VI Braschi (1775-1799) who commissioned the architect Pietro Camporese to turn the complex into a modern Palace:-monumental entrance with driveway up to the Palace front-entrance of the carriages-horse-stable reduction of the Tower prison transfer borgiani-the battlements-takeout in the Government Palace-marble clock Setup-Fresco decoration of the interiors done by Coccetti

  • Merits a visit. Beautiful frescos and the history, culture and religion there are cut with a knife. Very good, deep human and the Friar Father prepared Fabrizio, who made as a guide. Thank you!

  • No ticket but free offer. The guided tour is very interesting as the rest of the story that belongs to us. I expected to pay a ticket in order to cope with the renovation work.
