Castle Teofilatto, or Cajetani Tower Castle stands on a rocky outcrop which dominates an extended valley to Lake Canterno. Its construction dates back to Roman times, when it was a fortified place for protection of the ancient village. It hosted important historical figures such as St. Benedict on his journey of 529 to Montecassino. It belonged to the Roman family, Teofilatto of the Counts of Tusculum between 900 and 1100, before becoming a fief of the Caetani family at the behest of the powerful Pope Boniface VIII.
