Orsini Castle, Avezzano

The Orsini Castle is located in Avezzano. It was erected in 1490 under Gentile Virginio Orsini. Heavily damaged by the 1915’s earthquake, it still shows four imposing cylindrical towers and the monumental portal, wanted by the Colonna family to celebrate the victory of Lepanto.

Today the castle houses the picture gallery Ernesto Pomilio and a multifunctional hall. For info, contact the Municipality of Avezzano: +39 0863/5011 – +39 0863/23384.
