Medieval castle ruins

The ruins of this ancient castle are located just above the town, on the eastern slope of the Precastio and Precastiolo hills. The castle was built over a Roman structure between the 11th and 12th centuries. It was part of a complex network of fortifications built in order to defend the villages of Val d’Illasi.
