ROCCASCALEGNA is an Italian town of 1.251 inhabitants in the province of Chieti in Abruzzo. It is one of the eleven towns of the Mountain Community Middle Sangro-Aventino. The village is dominated by a Castle of Roccascalegna Abruzzo on top of a outcrop rocky in a dominating position over the area, has very ancient foundation and was subject to numerous additions between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. After the restoration made in recent years of the twentieth century, the castle is again open to visitors. The entrance to the castle is trough staircase and it’s possible to pass from one tower to another along other stairs carved into the stone, so you can visit the Tower of the Heart, named for a bas-relief sculptures with heart shape; the Tower of Prison that led to the dungeons of the castle and that dread just looking at it; the Tower of the Oven where the bread was cooked and the Watch Tower that dominates the area and offering spectacular views to visitors. Around the courtyard are arranged various rooms all accessible, starting from the room of weapons where there is a Byzantine flamethrower single piece ever made before in Europe, a machine that can launch remotely famous “greek fire”, a highly flammable mixture that was the secret weapon of the Byzantines for centuries. A legend of the castle tells about the application of the rule of the so-called Jus primæ noctis; According to this legend, the Baron of the castle, Corvo de Corvis, in 1646 claims to enforce this rule, which required all women in the town to spend the wedding night with him, instead of the spouse that married. The legend says that the last new bride, or the legitimate husband disguised in her clothes, arrived in the castle to spend the night, has instead stabbed the baron; It also seems that the latter, as he died, has also left an indelible mark on the rock of his bloody hand. In fact, according to rumors, this sign (which proved clearly visible after the collapse of 1940), reappears continuously, despite all the time that has been washed away.Show More
