Rochetta Mattei is very much worth a visit. The architecture is... strange, but the story behind it is very interesting. The tour (in English for us non-Italians) was very informative and entertaining.

Astonishing castle. It is built according to multiple styles, in particular there are numerous elements of Arab architecture. The guides are young and really competent. It is a real surprise located in the countryside. Absolutely a must see!

The castle is fantastic, so many interesting details, the place is full of mystery. The guide we had was excellent (Elena) and made the visit even more attractive. It is a lovely place to go before it becomes more popular.
