The Bishop’s fortress

The fortress was built in the X Century. Thanks to its privileged location it was one of the most dreaded defensive buildings of the area and it offered a safe shelter from the enemy’s assaults. Some of its rooms are decorated with important frescoes that date back to the XV, XVI and XVII Centuries. From the end of the 1500s until 1986 the castle was the home of the Bishops of Bertinoro.
It currently houses:
