Castle of Santa Severa

Il Santa Severa's Castle is located in Santa Severa, a frazione of Santa Marinella.

The area around the castle was inabitated since the Bronze Age; later the protohistoric village became Pyrgi, the main harbour of Caere, an important Etruscan city. In 264 b.C. the Romans built a colony over the Etruscan settlement. The barbarians destroyed the Roman town, but in the Dark Ages a new settlement was founded. A first small castle (more like a keep) was built in the 11th century. The strong coastal fortress (that we see today) dates back to 13th century. The castle is open to the public, but to visit it you must book in advance. In surrounding village is home to the Museo del Mare e della Navigazione Antica, an interesting museum dedicated to the ancient maritime trade

Location

In the tv series the Castle of Santa Severa appears just once, in the episode 1x01, during a flashback, in an outdoor scene filmed by the drone: Giovanni, Cosimo and Lorenzo are arriving at the coastal fortress, that is, in the story, Cardinal Baldassarre Cossa Palace. The next indoor scenes at Cossa’s home, instead, are taken in another castle: Castle Bracciano.

The tv series locations in Northern Latium are open to the public, and close to each other. Bracciano, the town where the main location is located, is in the middle: it’s the perfect base camp to visit them all. La Gismonda, a farmhouse close to the town center (less than 2km far) is a great place to stay and live the Medici experience.
