Rocca Pia was built by Pope Pius II in 1461 on a hill to control the city from above and to prevent any popular uprisings. The fortress has a square structure with four circular towers of different heights and is accessed through a drawbridge. The highest reaches 36.50 meters and is located near the Roman amphitheatre of the II century AD, the amphitheatre of Bleso. Until 1960 it was used as a prison.
