Rocca Malaspina

The Malaspina Castle dominates the city of Massa: the most ancient part of the Castle is the high part, that must have contained the first castle, since the 11th century. Its function was to supervise on the plain and the coast. The Malaspina Castle has been the ancient dwelling of the Lords of Massa until their movement in the Ducale Palace, in the 16th century. During Renaissance, the rocca was restored by Giacomo Malaspina, from who it received the name. The fortified complex rises in the quarter of Massa Vecchia, on a rocky spur. It is composed by a medieval nucleus, with a military aspect, and by the residence of the Malaspina, built in the 16th century. The palace is encircled by the fortifications and is connected to the most ancient part through a porch.
