Castello di Bominaco
Castle in Bominaco
The original structure dates back to the 12th century, but its current appearance comes from the destruction of the former castle by Braccio da Montone in 1424 and its reconstruction by the feudal lord of Bominaco Cyprian of Iacobuccio from Forfona, with permission of the Pope Martin V.
The castle walls have a trapezoidal plan, with squared towers in the middle. The highest point of the enclosure is defended by a strong cylindrical tower.
The interior of the enclosure still retains traces of complex masonry structures housed at the time.
