Verucchio Castle and Archaeology Museum Ticket

Emilia Romagna's Castles
The imposing Fortress of Verucchio, fortified by the Lord Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta in 1449, is one of the largest and best preserved Malatesta fortresses over the years. Hier, the fortress’s history can be captured during the visit of its wonderful halls, its basements or even its imposing Torre Mastio (Mastio Tower). From here the Panorama is breathtaking: the gaze wander from the gentle cost of Rimini to the high peaks of the Apennines. Icon of the fortress is “la Guardiola” that houses a beautiful clock, still working today. Priceless treasure of the “Rocca del Sasso” (“Stone fortress”), another fortress’s name thanks to its peculiar location on a spur of rocks, is the marvelous genealogical tree of the Malatesta lordship.

Between the 9th and 7th centuries BC, Verucchio was home to the Villanovan civilization. Inside this archaeological Museum you will see extraordinary artefacts that are extremely rare and thus invaluable.These include wool and linen fabrics, woollen baskets, wooden furnishings, food offerings and other finds from Verucchio’s Villanovan-Etruscan necropolis.
