Beautiful 16th-17th century castle currently being restored to its former glory. They only offer guided tours as the castle is privately owned and operated. Our tour guide was phenomenal! She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, she really brought the castle back to life! FYI, they even offer escape room challenges for those inclined! Definitely inquire if interested. It was definitely worth the trip!

Phenomenal place to visit with the family, little gem for the history buffs and a living case of how private owners can bring to life an extraordinary piece of history. Place itself is super cool but above all the guides, both for adults and kids, are superb. And all for pennies. What a treat, 5 stars is not enough!

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
