La Rocca, Spoleto

3.7
#1 of 7 in Museums in Spoleto
Standing tall atop St. Elias hill, towering dates back to 1359 and was built by Pope Innocent VI as part of a set of fortresses meant to reestablish papal authority in central Italy. The rectangular castle is topped by six stately towers and consists of two courtyards connected by a frescoed archway. These artworks show the six cities that at the time belonged to the church. You'll also see the Hall of Honor, meant for ceremonies and banquets, and the Camera Pinta, where you'll find two 14th-century fresco cycles. The fortress also offers spectacular views of the city and countryside beyond. Make La Rocca a centerpiece of your Spoleto vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Spoleto sightseeing planning website.
