Historical Notes

Solofra is located at the foot of the eastern slope of the Vellizzano and Faito Mountains.

The Castle remains are located at an altitude of 470 m above sea level. The first historical record of the hamlet dates back to 1015, its lord was a certain Maione. In 1417, the fief passed to Francesco Zurlo, Count of Montoro and then to the Filangieri Family who besieged the Castle with a large army. In 1528 the fortress passed to the family Orsini, to whom dynasty the fief belonged until the abolition of feudalism in 1806.

The ruins of the Castle consist chiefly of two angle-towers and some crumbling curtain Walls.
