Gombola Castle is a medieval fortification comprising several buildings accessed by an archway made of sandstone ashlar. The castle hamlet, consisting of the Podesteria (the Residence of the Podest�), the church, the bell tower - built out of one of the castle towers - and a handful of houses, was built on the top of a rocky crag overhanging the river Rossenna. The castle was once the residence of the De Gomula Counts who wrote within its gloomy rooms their story of power, tyranny, tough judgement, violence and oppression. It is protected on three sides by the twisting river Rossenna and linked by road to the parish of Gombola and by path to San Martino and Palaveggio. It is worth pointing out the church of St Michael the Archangel �Power of God�, situated at the top of a gentle slope a short distance away from the other buildings.
