Castle of Civitacampomarano

Castle of Civitacampomarano

Civitacampomarano appears as one of the most evocative castles in the region. The monument keeps its ancient architecture almost intact, despite the passing of history. Whichever way you look at it, the building amazes with its size and architectural audacity. The main entrance takes place via a staircase and an entrance portal with a segmental arch typical of the Catalan-Aragonese style of the fifteenth century. Above the keystone there are two coats of arms: the upper one belongs to the Carafa della Spina family; the lower one is by Paolo di Sangro. Above the arch you can still see two rectangular recesses which were used to slide the chains of the drawbridge, which is no longer preserved today. In the internal courtyard there is the graceful so-called "Samnite" fountain formed by a sculpture with four anthropomorphic figures, placed here by the last owners in the modern era. An open staircase leads to the first floor where the noble rooms and service areas are located, which in part retain the pictorial decoration. The stables, warehouses and granary were located on the lower floors; from here you had access to the towers and walkways. Under the main tower an internal staircase led to the moat and the prisons. Over the centuries, the monument has undergone various interventions: the filling of the moat, the collapse of part of the northern side, the modifications to the internal spaces; nevertheless it maintains its charm of "ancient giant" in perfect harmony with the historic center and the surrounding landscape.
