San Felice sul Panaro

Rocca Estense Castle

The majestic fort at San Felice

When it was erected in 1343, the majestic castle consisted only of the keep and a crenellated perimeter wall. Tradition tells that Pope Julius II stayed there in January 1511, while he was going to besiege the city of Mirandola.
Building heavily damaged by the 2012 earthquake.
