Presentation

The Lower Castle of Marostica (VI), erected starting in 1312 in what is now Castle Square, consists of the keep and the structure that develops behind it forming a crenellated wall enclosure. The keep, in particular, is 10 meters wide and 34 meters high, divided into 7 internal floors connected by 126 steps. Two drawbridges, placed on the north and south sides of the facades, allow crossing a large moat. The court of arms, on the ground floor, is surrounded by double brick colonnades, has frescoes on the walls, and in the center is a 15th-century Asiago stone well. On the upper floor, the loggia, decorated with 17th-century frescoes, gives access to the historical rooms and the exhibition of costumes made for the biennial living-character chess game that made the city world famous.
