Castello Pallotta, Caldarola

Il Castello Pallotta si affaccia su Caldarola, suggestivo borgo nel cuore delle Marche, in provincia di Macerata. Edificato intorno alla seconda metà del IX secolo, subisce una modifica radicale verso la fine del '500 quando il cardinale Evangelista Pallotta lo trasforma in residenza estiva apportandone migliorie in stile rinascimentale per celebrare il prestigio della famiglia Pallotta.

Il castello conserva ancora intatte le mura, la merlatura guelfa, i camminamenti di ronda, il ponte levatoio ed al suo interno ogni minimo dettaglio è collocato nel proprio contesto originale. Il percorso di visita offre allo sguardo del turista i suggestivi ambienti interni, dalle cucine alle sale di rappresentanza, con splendidi affreschi del pittore Simone De Magistris, dalla biblioteca, alle sale tematiche in cui vengono esposti abiti d’epoca, selle e morsi per cavalli, carrozze e calessi, passando per la stanza da bagno con l’originale vasca neoclassica e la camera da letto che ha ospitato nel corso dei secoli personaggi del rango di Papa Clemente VIII, Re Casimiro di Polonia e la Regina di Svezia Cristina.

“Castello Pallotta” is located in Caldarola, a charming village in the heart of Le Marche region, in the province of Macerata. The castle was built in the ninth century and was restored at the end of the sixteenth century by the cardinal Evangelista Pallotta.

The ancient castle walls are still intact, as are its Guelph crenellations, battlements and drawbridge. The visit takes you through the historic building, where every ornament is placed in its original context with great attention to detail. It is possible to visit the ancient kitchen, with its traditional copper cookware and ceramic, the reception hall, the elegant bedchamber, the dining room with its fine collection of eighteenth century majolica and, finally, the exquisite “Salotto Giallo” with the paintings attributed to the artist Simone De Magistris.
