The Staircase and Polenta Well

the well was built by the tyrant of Corinaldo Antonello Accattabriga in the second half of the fifteenth century to provide water to the surrounding homes. It was subsequently buried during renovations of the staircase in the early 1900s.


The Western Part of the Wall Belt

This is the last entryway, in order of construction, to the Corinaldo castle and was built for the occasion of the Renaissance addition (1484-1490). The gate and the adjacent tower had been partially interred in 1850, when the ring road around the walls and the lower “murello” were constructed.


The Eastern Part of the Wall Belt

A real masterpiece of military defense consisting of two parts built in two different eras. There is a pointed arch located at the foot of massive steps on Via Piaggia, with ashlars bearing the epigraphs showing the year of construction “Hoc opus … MCCCXL” (1340) and the name of the gate “ad portas Sancte Marie”.


Northern part of the wall belt

An enormous structure consisting of an access archway leading to the city centre and buildings constructed to house the Bargello (the people’s Captain) and the guard house. This is considered the most interesting area of the castle wall, with many of the defensive structures still unchanged over time, such as the “bianchetta”, a small portal to the left of the arch that allowed access to the city centre at night and during sieges.
