Castles / Acaya - Vernole (LE)

Acaya's Castle

The castle is located a few kilometers from the Adriatic coast of Salento, not far from Lecce and Vernole, of which Acaya is a hamlet.
The 16th century fortress followed the dictates of the time in the context of modern fortification, in fact, the building looks like a quadrilateral whose vertices are grafted to the ramparts, of short and robust shape, suited for defense and attack against firearms. In particular, in direction NW and SE are grafted two spurs of triangular shape, suited to deflect attacks from firearms and by the two opposite sides are inserted imposing circular towers. All ramparts possess embrasures at all levels. The system is designed by military architect Gian Giacomo dell'Acaya, son of Alfonso, on behalf of Charles V.
