The original fortified nucleus occupied the high ground on which the Castle stands, and later the walls were enlarged. As with many other fortresses of Lazio, the Castle ended its defensive function in the sixteenth century and was turned into a Baron's Palace with the addition of two round crenellated towers. Today the Castello Orsini is owned by the municipality of Montenero and can be visited: the great manor halls with frescoes of coats of arms of noble Houses, the inner courtyard and the scenic outdoor staircase.
