The castle of Rocca Pia

The castle of Rocca Pia
During the Renaissance popes and cardinals did not limit their embellishment program to Rome, and erected buildings in Tivoli also. In 1461 Pope Pius II built the massive Rocca Pia to control the always riotous population, and as a symbol of the permanence of papal temporal power here.

Giorgos, Renate have particularly liked this photo
