Castelnuovo di Porto is a charming medieval hill town situated 25 km North East of Rome and is
one of the few unspoiled historical centres close to the capital. The village grew up around an
imposing medieval castle called Rocca Colonna. During the course of history Rocca Colonna was
contested by several noble and even papal families, and eventually became the property of the
Colonna family, giving the castle its name.
After the second world war the castle was used as a prison until the 1960s. It has now been
skillfully restored to its former splendor and has many frescoed rooms which everyone can enjoy
as the castle is open to the public for numerous cultural events such as theatre, concerts and art
