Однако он прекрасно сохранился до наших дней.  Узкий и высокий, он  еще и взобрался на высоту 414 m above sea level.


The village of Serralunga appeared simultaneously with military citadel in the period 1340-1360. under the Marquises of Falletti.  Throughout the centuries, the castle served as a military fortification and protection from enemy attacks.
