The medieval fortress built in the V - VI century by the Lombards is in position relative to the center of Passignano and after the bombing of the Second World War and a long period of restoration that has forced it to close its doors to the public, was reopened in May of 2008.

Offers visitors a panoramic view of 360° around Trasimeno Lake and the hills.
This wonderful view is enjoyable after having climbed the spiral staircase and reached the terrace on the top of the tower(high 32 meters).
