Fienga Castle and Park

Fienga Castle and Park

The structure of the castle is surrounded by three walls and at the top of them a Norman-Svevian pentagonal tower was built. Traces of medieval frescos, representing saints, are visible into a small chapel. From the original plant, remain structures like the Royal cavalry or the room of the Giants where the Angioini Royal family held the hearings. Interesting are the double lancet windows on the western side of the great courtyard where were probably situated the principal apartment. Further structures are preserved between the first and the second wall. The actual structure at the top of the hill of the Park was substantially built between the XIX and the XX century and takes the name of Fienga Palace from the last owners who lived there till few decades ago.

The towered palace built on the summit of the park hill that has incorporated the pentagonal tower, dates back to the second half the XIX century. It had a further setup in the first decades of the twentieth century, when some saloons were readjusted for putting to their inside the valuable archaeological collection of the new owners, the Fiengas, who have maintained the residence up to the 60’s of the last century. Purchased by the town administration in 1971, today, after wise restorations, the building is partly become the seat of the Patto dell’Agro S.p.A.
