An ancient location of one of the four fortresses that the Malatigni built around the Sassi between the 13th and 14th centuries, Castellaro is a small residential nucleus at the top of a steep sloping hill with panoramic views over the Sassi di Roccamalatina. There are several important architectural elements of the settlement which point to its 14th to 15th century origins.
With a more prominent position than Borgo dei Sassi, on a rocky outcrop, you will see an isolated square-shaped tower. The walls are rendered in sandstone whilst the top part lends a more decorative look to the structure thanks to the presence of numerous holes for swifts found all over the building.
