Rocca Colonna

  • Rocca Colonna

Energitismo Insight

This palace is the town's central nucleus around which Castelnuovo was founded. This early medieval fortress was then converted into a palace in the late fifteenth century under Pope Nicholas V Colonna. When the state took over the papal control of the centre, this building housed the Apostolic Chamber and was then transformed into a prison and into the District Court, which was active until 1960. Today it belongs to the municipal administration.
