Fodor's Review

The distinctive Castello della Rovere, easily spotted as you come off the footbridge from the train station and part of the medieval borgo (town), was built in 1483 by Pope Julius II when he was the cardinal bishop of Ostia. The structure's triangular form is unusual for military architecture. As of 2015 the castle was closed for a lengthy restoration.
