Scorticata Castle (Rimini-Italy)
Scorticata Castle is located on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Marecchia valley and the underlying village of Torriana, which is part of it administratively. From its position it dominates the surrounding area with views as far as the eye can see.
Visit to Scorticata Castle
From the external car park, the visit begins with a small climb that crosses the only access door to the village. The door is flanked by two massive circular towers and part of the male. After passing the door, a large square appears, a little bare and today used as a parking space for the restaurant that has occupied what was once the fortress of the castle. Continuing and climbing further towards the top of the rocky ridge, we find the bell tower with adjoining ecclesiastical building, partially rebuilt after the almost total destruction suffered in the Second World War. So we reach the top of the hill where there are the remains of the walls of some small buildings well maintained in memory of what life was like in this small village. From here the view is incredible, the view is lost looking towards the sea and observing a long stretch of coast that, on clear days, goes from Cattolica to Cesenatico.
