Spoleto - Rocca Albornoziana

Spoleto - Rocca Albornoziana
Seen from the "Chiesa di San Salvatore" is the Rocca Albornoziana, that towers over Spoleto since 1370. It was built by the architect Matteo Gattapone of Gubbio for Spanish Cardinal Albornoz.

After having resisted many sieges, the Rocca was turned into a jail in 1800 and used as such until the late 20th century. In 2007 the Rocca Albornoziana was reopened as a museum after an extenisive renovation.

Seen to the right is the steeple of the Duomo di Spoleto.
