Rocca San Paolino overlooks the town from atop its 89 metres and, together with the other Medieval towers located on the surrounding hills, constituted a complex defence system.
You can visit the fortress anytime free of charge; excursions are guided by the volunteers of the “Salviamo la Rocca” Association who can be contacted through the reception one day prior to arrival.
The “Festa della Rocca” feast is held in July of each year, with a historical commemoration and food itineraries in surrounding farm holiday establishments.
The nearest village, the fortified village of Nozzano, (Lucca), is about 3.5 km away and is perched on a hill as a garrison for the opposite bank of the river.
