Palace of Arezzo

Above the town of Arezzo, at 425 meters above sea level you can see the remains of the Palace, resulting from the transformation into a noble residence of a fortress of the Equitani family from Cesi.
Initially it was a military structure then transformed into the summer residence of the family which, in the meantime, had taken the name of Cesi. It was probably then owned by the noble Benedetti Montevecchio di Spoleto family. The building had 60 rooms, arranged on three levels, and overlooked the course of the Maroggia river, before the construction of the dam, watching over the important Roman road that connected Spoleto to Sangemini. It is now in complete disrepair, shrouded in vegetation and dangerous to enter. The remains of walls, on which elegant fourteenth-century windows open, basements with elegant vaults, piles of stones and what remains of a vague sixteenth-century decoration, still suggest the ancient splendor of the building.
