Rocca Minore

Castle in Assisi

Perched on the hill to the right of Rocca Maggiore, once linked by traversable walls, stands another fortress, though relatively newer in comparison.

Known as Rocchicciola or Cassero di Sant’Antonio, it derives its name from the nearby brotherhood of Sant’Antonio and San Giacomo, situated near the Capuchin gate beneath the fortress itself.

These two strongholds overlook Assisi from above and are linked by an extensive wall, beneath which lies a hidden pathway.
