Las Plassas, Castle of Marmilla

Castle of Marmilla in Las Plassas

Raised at the beginning of the 12th century in a dominating position over the inhabited centre, the Castle of Marmilla had a great importance in the age of local kingdoms, as it marked the boundary walls of the kingdom of Arborea; thus, it covered a military-strategic function within the control of the reign. Several construction stages were revealed by excavation campaigns, which brought to light internal spaces, towers, walkways, lodgings, warehouses, cisterns and a bailey. Daily life at the manor, its history, economy between the 11th and the 15th century can be experienced thanks to the Museum of Las Plassas Castle, hosted in the village in a typical house of Campidano, dating from the 19th century.
