Fortifications and castles


Castle of Venafro
The market tower    

A market tower still survives in Venafro, located over the eastern gateway of the town walls. It has undergone numerous adaptations over the centuries, and today has the appearance of a small palace with crenellations. Nothing remains of the moat (mentioned in the sources) that once defended it, but it still preserves crossbow slits at the level that is now the basement.
