The ruins of the old castle of Guardea rises up on a hill, just behind the village of Guardea, in one of the most scenic places of Amerino area.

The complex covers an area of about 8000 square meters, with a perimeter wall preserved in the elevation for about 1/3, but detectable in the whole its perimeter. The curtain wall has many loopholes, but it can still be seen much of the system of eight towers (six square and two semi-circular) in addition to the large central tower. It’s undoubtedly a place full of charm and memories, and those who go there get fascinated by a magical and unreal atmosphere emanated from every wall, evoking noises and sounds of ancient battles and feasts, smoke and odors of everyday life in the past.
