The fortress was probably built around the year one thousand. Interestingly, his elevated position left Bertinoro to defend himself very well over the centuries, as well as making it almost impregnable. In addition, the fort was built in a way that blends perfectly with foothills of the rock on which rests, and this gives an additional level of natural defenses. Of course, this construction is the core of a defensive system, which includes a strong walled ring reinforced with four towers, drawbridge and a series of fortified gates, which guarantees the safety of the village. La Rocca has long been the beating heart of the country and beyond stately, as the storage of supplies and water, prison doubled and was the center of military life (in fact, lived and trained soldiers). After hosting Frederick Barbarossa in 1177, its walls hosted people's families Sforza and Borgia until it became a bishopric. It houses the Museum of Sacred Art  and the University Center of Bertinoro.
