The North-East Gate
The North-East Gate, recently restored, is one of the three access points to the village of Larciano Castello and has the same constructive and modular characteristics of the North Gate. Built using, as modular basis, the “Liutprand foot”, an ancient unit of measure of Longobard origin, it dates at the first phase of fortification of the ancient villa, at the end of the 11th Century AD by Counts Guidi di Modigliana, who, as early as the 10th Century, established a wide feud along the Montalbano and on the surrounding hills.
The significant change in the road access to the Castle has meant that the door is now outside the new road.
