Borgo Piticchio

What to know about Borgo Piticchio

The small village of Piticchio is enclosed within irregularly shaped walls. At the top, in the stretch that goes from east to west, there are four towers that protrude from the castle walls.

The current access to the village dates back to the end of the 800th century when the drawbridge that connected the door to the ancient communication route was replaced by an embankment.

The patrol walkway, today, is in a good state of conservation and can be completely covered. Some buildings intended for housing were built above the walls.

The internal viability consists of the patrol walkway and a series of stone alleys perpendicular to the main road that cuts through the village in a north-south direction.

The Church of San Sebastiano is worth a visit, which overlooks a square towards the east.
