  • The ruins of the fortress are located at the highest point of the town of Tolfa. It can be reached with a climb of steps a little tiring but once you reach the Rocca you can enjoy a beautiful landscape to 360°

  • With regret, I saw that there is much talk of the Rocca dei Frangipane, beautiful, ancient and fascinating, putting into the background, "the Church". The Santuario Madonna della Rocca, deserves much more! It is a very old church, of medieval origins and is an integral part of the fortress, a place very dear to the inhabitants of Tolfa. Obviously Tolfa is waiting to see, after getting stopped on the town's main square, walk in the old town. Along the alleys of the village, after a trail of course uphill, you will arrive at the fortress, from where it dominates the whole town and the valleys below. The path and a bit demanding, among other things, climbing, meet the seven crosses, placed there in memory of the seven sorrows of Mary. Once at the Summit, the wonder makes us forget our little "aches" and you feel satisfied. In the village of Tolfa, there are lots of parties, festivals, food events, musical, as the international jazz festival or folk dances, such as the tournament of the Cowboys. Then there's a good party, on the occasion of Sant'Egidio Abate, the patron saint of the town. I would also like, that you can buy at Tolfa, true and beautiful leather handbag, (catana) typical of the Cowboys, but used by many women in their 50s, at school! I enclose a photo.

  • Although I have visited countless times the Rocca, the emotion remains the same. Like when I was a kid, still within in the ruins of the Castle (even if they are closed) and admire the breathtaking view of the Monti della Tolfa.
