Forte Castellaccio

The walls of this fort also comprise the 19th-century Torre della Specola (1817-1820), built in a polygon shape using red brickwork, from which a large cannon was fired every day at 12 noon until just before the Second World War.
The Torre houses a Meteorological Observatory belonging to the Hydrographical Institute of the Italian Navy.
