Castello Pallotta is located in Caldarola, a charming village in the heart of Le Marche region, in the province of Macerata. The castle was built in the ninth century and was restored at the end of the sixteenth century by the cardinal Evangelist Pallotta. He decided to transform the building into a majestic Renaissance residence.The ancient castle walls are still intact, as are its Guelph crenelations, battlements and drawbridge. The visit takes you through the historic building, where every ornament is placed in its original context with great attention to detail.

The castello sits up on the hill above the town of Caldarola. The castle is in remarkable condition both inside and out and still contains the original furnishings, clothing, and early transportation vehicles. It also has a small private collection of medieval arms. The best...More

You enter a small courtyard and ring the bell for the guide. The castle is family owned and was lived in until comparatively recently so has warm feel. It is small for a castle and rooms are not roped off you feel more like guest...More
