Castello o Complesso del Torrione di Avetrana

Almost a ruin until the first half of the 1980s, since 1998 the ancient castle or Casale of Santa Maria della Vetrana, in Avetrana, has undergone restoration and conservation interventions. It is still possible to admire the ancient towers once closely connected to the walls. Inside the building there is a museum and the municipal library. Passed from hand to hand from the Angevin age to the possession in the eighteenth century by the Roman family, the Torrione still retains the charm of the past. With the remains of the ancient walkways and the drawbridge, the ancient trappeti, the underground oil mills kept in its belly. In the square tower, the Federician style that in those years also characterized other towers of Puglia is still traceable.
