Cordovado – between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Listed among the “most beautiful villages in Italy”, the fortified area of Cordovado, known as the Castle (il Castello), was the seat of numerous powers: civil, military and ecclesiastical powers throughout the Middle Ages.

The outer city walls, together with the embankment, the moat and two towers are still there to be admired. Opposite the castle, there are two Renaissance residences, as well as the 17th-century Palazzo Freschi Piccolomini, an imposing three-storey building with a large entrance portal, set in an ancient park.
