A place rich in history
Many elements suggest that at the beginning it was a strongholding house, probably it was only the house of a small armed escort and the pedagerius responsible for collecting the toll that had to pay the goods and the people in transit.
The project of transformation of the ancient “ricetto” or “casa forte” in residence was started in the sixteenth century by Alessio I (1545 – 1588) progenitor of the Seconds of San Martino di Parella.
But the seventeenth century is the most characteristic of the Castle. Conceived in the Renaissance, the Castle reflects the conditions of the time and gradually changes its function, becoming a place of rest enriched with elements that testify to the prestige of the family, while maintaining the original elements such as towers and drawbridges.
