Emilia Romagna Castles

Rocchetta Mattei

Rocchetta Mattei is a castle like no other with its unique combination of different syles and its labyrinth of interconnected rooms, courtyards, passages, stairways, arches, painted vaults and towers.
Its architecture is strictly intertwined with the fascinating story of Cesare Mattei, who picked the location with the specific intent to make his fortress the cradle for the practice known as electrohomoeopathy.
