Vassallo Caste, located in San Giovanni, owes its fortune to the geographical position. The feudal lords chose to build the castle for its large visual control.
With a stone portal and small towers it was called the “castle” for its strategic position in defense of residences set in the shadow of its imposing size.
At the end of the 18th Century was assigned by the royal court to the Ventimiglia Family. Later, a descendant of this family, brought the castle as a dowry for the wedding with Giuseppe Vassallo.
The historical nucleus of the palace consists of several structures and has a Tower corner with arched windows, in late Reinaissance style, which makes the to think that it was build among the 11th and the 12th century.
