Ruins of the castle of Speronella, Rocca Pendice, Teolo

Teolo (PD)

The origins of this fortress, whose remains are still clearly visible by the top of Rocca Pendice, are unknown, but it kept its military function for a long time. Around the mid-12th century, the Bishop of Padua gave it to Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, who returned it to the bishop after only a few years. Legend has it that Speronella Dalesmanini, who became a symbol of municipal freedom, was imprisoned here.
