The Orsini Castleit stands over and dominates the entire medieval town
The Orsini Castle Is the symbolic building of the whole town
The Castle today
This transformation into a detention facility has in fact distorted the entire structure of the Castle. The works of art have given way to cells and large gates, creating a unique experience for visitors, far from the fairytale idea of a castle, but with the human and mysterious appearance of a fortress and protective building. After the prison closed, the complex suffered several vicissitudes. Today it is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, and is home to permanent and temporary exhibitions.
What to see
- “From Organs to Talking Machines” is a unique sensory and cultural experience thanks to a rich and working collection that ranges from the invention of Edison’s phonograph, through gramophones, up to vinyl. Visiting the exhibition, you are completely immersed in an atmosphere of times gone by, and you will be amazed and enchanted by these instruments over a hundred years old and still in perfect working order, creating magical and evocative sounds.
- “Rural Civilisation of Tuscia” is the exhibition laid out on the Orsini Castle’s main floor, consisting of tools and equipment belonging to Tuscia’s rural culture in the 19th and 20th centuries. A rich and comprehensive journey discovering ancient customs linked to food and wine and traditional crafts.
A visit to the merlon in the keep, from where it is possible to admire the surrounding landscape, is highly recommended.
