Casa della Rocca is a delightful house for sale, built in the walls of an ancient Castle located near the medieval town of Todi.
The Castle of which Casa della Rocca makes part of, is a small fortress of the twelfth century and is a typical example of a medieval fortified village built on a rock overlooking the Tiber river.
