This is the only well-preserved structure of the ancient fortified settlement of Goriano of which are still visible the ruins of the enclosure punctuated by towers and the remains of dwellings within the walls.
The tower dates back to the C14th and is about 19 meters high with a diameter of about 6.5 meters; originally it was both defensive and a watchtower, which we can see from the visual contact with Beffi tower nearby.
Inside the layout is octagonal and it is divided into four floors connected by wooden stairs. Downstairs was a cistern for water collection.
An inspection of the external masonry shows the presence of some square and rectangular windows, and above the remains of rectangular merlons implying that the original structure was entirely crenellated.3D model of the medieval towering village
