The Ducal Castle of Crecchio - ITALY

(Castello di Crecchio - Abruzzo)
Crecchio, 400 mt

Throughout the centuries this beautiful castle, once a fortress, has become a residential complex, made up of four bodies closed by corner towers forming an open courtyard with a portico on both sides.
The tower facing north-east is probably the original body: the remaining towers developed from it in time.
The towers facing south date back to XV century, whereas the tower facing north-east dates back to XII century. In June 1943 the fortress was seriously damaged by bombardments.
After that the castle was restored and today it is the seat of the Byzantine and Highmedieval Abruzzo Museum.
