Archaeological Park on Colle della Rocca

Monselice (PD)

An historical itinerary including remains of the Longobard presence and a permanent exhibition on the time of Ezzelino and the Carrarese family. Thanks to the restoration of the ancient fortifications on the hilltop, built between the 12th and 14th century, further elements were found, such as houses, crenelated walls, and the apse of the ancient church of St. Giustina, that Frederick II Hohenstaufen ordered to demolish in the first half of the 13th century to make room for the still existing fortified tower.
