Assisi, birthplace of St. Francis and St. Clare, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000. Assisi was originally inhabited by the Umbrians and later it became an important town of the Roman Empire. In the Basilica of St. Francis there are masterworks by Cimabue, Giotto, Lorenzetti and Simone Martini.

The castle is laid out on five levels: a basement floor and four above-ground levels.
The castle house can be entered through a stone arch or from the back side through the olive grove and the garden.
The castle was built using sandstone and river pebbles and it maintains stone fireplaces, frescoes, ceilings with wooden beams and brick arches.
The property has undergone a careful structural restoration concerning roofs, attics and foundations, as well as seismic safety improvements.
The property includes balconies, gardens and a private olive grove. Inside the castle there are two courtyards, a big one and a small one.
The castle looks onto the square of the village, where there is plenty of room at its disposition.
