The presence of castle, walls, towers, fortified villages characterizes
the landscape of the Matese area, and offers the visitor a fascinating
environment rich in history.
Most of the villages still preserve the ancient medieval structure: the accesses, the walls, the noble palace, the churches.
One of the most significant examples is the castle of Prata, built in the 12th century, and perfectly preserved with its cylindrical towers in the corners. It is part of a small village, still partially enclosed by its walls and elevating on a rocky spur degrading towards the river Lete.
