Another Reason to Visit Le Marche - Castello Brancaleoni


The 13th Century castle stands small but proud, just like the people that live below it's ancient walls in the idyllic farming village of Piobbico (Le Marche, Italy).

The castle was altered and transformed in 1573-1587 into a beautiful Renaissance residence, designed by the architect Baccio Pontelli and built by Count Guido Antonio I Brancaleoni, captain of Duke Federico da Montefeltro.
