About the tour

Once again we will see another beautiful fairytale which is located by the sea. Santa Severa’s Castle is one of the most evocative places of the Lazio region, located along the Tyrrhenian coast in the north of Rome, is a heritage of inestimable value both historical and cultural. The Castle owes its current name to the young Christian martyr Severa, who was killed – traditionally – on June 5, 298 AD in this place, together with his brothers Calendino and Marco, under the empire of Diocletian. The structure of the real Castle, however, dates back to the XIV century. A moat surrounded the structure, with a rectangular plan with corner towers, and connected it by a wooden bridge to the imposing cylindrical fortification, the “Maschio”, formerly called “La Torre del Castello”. Pope Leo X built it in the mid-ninth century and, following further reconstruction, it continues to this day in its XVI-XVII century structure.
