Pendolasco tower

Where
via San Fedele 52, Poggiridenti

The Pendolasco tower was built in a dominant position in the Torricello quarter. Raised in the late Fourteenth century by the Da Pendolasco family, this is a classical example of a Medieval signalling tower with a square plan. The building has four floors and a stonework that draws attention to the huge ashlars. 

The tower underwent several alterations, such as lintel windows - some provided with bars and shutters. The tower has a monofora and some balconies. An external stone staircase sustained by a vaulted structure, leads to the second floor. 

At the end of the Sixteenth century the tower was taken over by the Sermondi family, that promoted the renovation and the emebellishment of the tower - some frescoes were discovered in 1996.
