About the Homestay
Built in the Middle Ages by the Vico Prefects, guarding the only natural access to the city, in the following centuries often changed property, destination and form. It was the birthplace of the Counts of Anguillara, Della Rovere and Farnese from 1526 to 1649, under the ownership of Della Rovere the castle underwent major changes, in particular between 1475 and 1480 with the renovation wanted by Pope Sisto IV and entrusted to Florentine architect Giovanni Dolci, who modified it by adding the circular doorman and the four fortified towers at the corners, which among other things gave the castle the current popular name "The Torrions". There were eminent characters among whom Pope Sisto IV and Pope Paul III lived. In 1649 it became the property of the Holy See which sold it in 1756 to the Genoese Girolamo Maré, who committed itself to its preservation and to the abstraction.
