The frescoes tell the story of the life and exploits of Ascanio della Corgna who was an admired soldier in the 1500's , his uncle was Pope Julius 111. This leads to the enclosed walkway up to the Fortress . It was their private home

Amazing history hidden between these walls. Well maintained and presented. All information displayed in Italian and English. Combined ticket allows you to explore the castle too. Good value for money!
