Detailed description:

In 1317 at the end of a period of fighting between opposing factions of feudal mountain lords, Montefiorino was once more occupied by the noble Montecuccoli family, who between 1318 and 1320 had a new fortress built on the summit of the mountain, along with a tower to the south of the hamlet, called the Poggio (meaning hillock), later renamed “Torre del Mercato” (“the market tower”). Various restoration works have been carried out on the tower over the centuries, but the original masonry parameters with their even rows, the primitive arrow slits and the squared openings still remain.
