About
The medieval fortress of Urbisaglia was a military fortification erected by the town of Tolentino at the beginning of the 16th century. It has a trapezoidal shape with the longest side facing away from the town in order to better face potential attacks. There are four corner towers, a gate tower and a keep where the garrison Tolentino had imposed on Urbisaglia resided. Indeed, the fortress' main function, other than to control the surrounding areas, was to guard the town and to prevent any rebellious acts from the citizens of Urbisaglia, who resented Tolentino's power over them.

Interesting piece of history

The Rocco commands an excellent view of the town of Urbisaglia and the surrounding countryside. There is not a lot to see in the structure itself, but the fee is small and the experience is worth it.

Visited this place at the start of the summer season, so were one of the only tourists around. Lovely views of the surrounding countryside!

Go on the week end of not on the high season

We've now worked out that many historical monuments are only open on the week end and possibly in the morning. The ticket to the fort is purchased in several combinations with all Urbisaglia monuments. Either inside use the fort itself up the stairs our at the Roman ruin site next to the main route 78. This fort is well preserved and impressive engineering structure. Little earthquake damage compared to other similar forts in Marche.

Small but impressive

We wandered into this medieval fort in Urbisaglia as we had a ticket covering this and the vast Roman ruins just outside the town (see separate review on Parco Archeologico di Urbs Salvia) and the close by abbey at Fiastra (see separate review on Abbidia di Fiastra). Small and compact with great views from the top of the substantial walls and tower but nothing much inside except small ruins of the earlier fort. Definitely worth a visit though, but you don’t need a huge amount of time (<1 hour) unless you want to linger over the views. Certainly value for money either as included in the €7/adult for the fort, Roman ruins and abbey, or at the €3/adult for just the fort.

From the outside that is. I couldn't visit the interior as I guess winter isn't the best time. The whole town is a medieval wonder, though and well worth a visit.
