THE EPISCOPAL PALACE (Palazzo Vescovile)

With the destruction of the city of Castro and the erection of the new diocese of Acquapendente, the city became a bishopric and the bull of November 13, 1649 of Innocent X made its constitution official. The community, with the help of the brotherhoods, bought and offered the bishop the palace of the Oliva family. On the first floor there is the historical archive of the Dioceses of Castro and Acquapendente.

We have a drawing of the previous structure of the town hall by the architect Guglielmo Meluzzi himself in 1873.
